Hi all,

It's amazing how fast you can do things when you've got the right tools for
the job :)

Got my Mac Plus cracked open last night - that long TORX driver isn't called
a MacCracker for nothing - and discovered the previous owner had managed to
mash the metal cover of a floppy disk into the head mechanism etc; having
freed that up and got it working mechanically again I discovered what had
been rattling round the case - the bottom read/write head which has snapped
off. So! Beyond repair since I haven't got another drive for spares....

Has any of you got one they'd be willing to sell? It's not the sort of thing
I see lying around at markets and boot sales!
