Hmmm...I think he is in for a bit of a disappointment, as those drives
date back to 1970 or so. I really doubt there are any left doing work, or
even having the potential to do work.

I do remember seeing a 400 meg 3330 in a junk yard two years ago. It was
pretty well trashed, and the ton plus beast would not fit in my Escort.

Trivia: the 3330 "Merlin" was the first production drive to have servo
