 Well I'm not in old blimey, otherwise I could offer a KB.
The ST floppy drives have been the bane of my Atari ST
existance. There must be a multitude of STers out there
that have tried to reform these beasts. At some time I'm
going to get serious about reclaiming them, instead of
simply replacing them. I did restore a couple by fiddling
around with the heads, even without a scope or timing
disk.Which gave me a couple of more years on 2 of them,
but of course they eventually failed again.
