Got a call last week from a local vendor who remembered that I was looking
for a 7 track drive. He found two (!) as they were going through their inventory.

They are EXACTLY what I have been trying to find for a long, long time..

HP7970 tension arm drives with DUAL MODE 7/9 track head assemblies! They are
capable of reading anything from 7trk 200bpi to 9trk 1600 bpi tapes.

I won't say how much they were (they weren't cheap) but as part of the deal
he let me go through some of his head stack spares, and I found 14 dual mode
head stacks! (he let me have five of them with the drives)
