FSOT: IBM 4869 external 5 1/4" floppy drive

Sort of off the topic of the drives for sale, but on the topic of an
external IBM disk drive. I have the cable from a 4869 drive connected to a
full-height drive (IBM), which is connected to a 4869 P/S on my IBM PC.
However, it doesn't look so good.

I was wondering if anyone had an old TRS-80 disk box (mod. 1 style) that
they'd be willing to part with for a few bucks. The drive itself doesn't
need to work. All I really need is the box and the P/S for it, so I have
something to house my external drive "B" in.
