Kalok Drives

While it's true that not everyone liked KALOK, I'd not be influenced too
much by the fact they're no longer with us. IMI, CMI, Miniscribe, Shugart,
and many others are gone, too. Not everyone like their products either.
You should probably determine whether these babies work before you ditch
them. They don't have enough aluminum scrap value to justify destroying
them before you know whether they work. If they do they are worth a few
dollars to you and a week of headaches, aspirin, MAALOX, prune juice, and
whiskey to the buyer. . . but it's YOUR money, and it's HIS headaches . . .
get the picture?
