        Can anyone give the hard drives and enclosures this fellow has a good
home? The price is certainly right ($10 + shipping). What they are is two
enclosures, each with a pair of Miniscribe 4022's (16 MB each, formatted)
in them, and I've also been led to understand that the enclosures contain a
SCSI-to-MFM bridge board.

        Please reply directly to the offerer. Thanks!
