Those sort of 5 1/4 drive cases were pretty common (at least up in this
neck of the woods) with the northstar floppy controller in it, i'd bet
that it is using the 5 1/4 drives, and has been for quite some time. (i
didn't see a tandy label on them and I don't remember tandy ever shipping
drives with the doorlock switch on the front...
