Be sensible - if someone approaches you to trade via PM who is not posting in the public forums, this may be a sign that they are not entirely what they seem. Please report it to the moderators if you receive an unsolicited message from anyone suspicious, so that it can be investigated and hopefully stop anyone being taken advantage of.

Sold: Cumana dual 40/80 5.25" floppy drive

Post by cmorley » Sun Sep 30, 2018 9:13 am

Hello All,

More stuff for sale. This time a Cumana twin 40/80 5.25" disc drive.

The drives are the TEC brand. I have repaired them and replaced the electrolytic capacitors which had leaked. They are tested and now work. They format/verify/read and write.

The case is in good condition. There are a few marks - good for a 30+ year old drive unit. A good candidate to swap a drive for a gotek - you can reuse the 40/80 switch to turn it into a ds0/ds1 swap (to make gotek 0/2 or 1/3 on a switch).

£50 + P&P

It is heavy so courier - UPS or DPD.
Or collection from Oxford, next London RiscOS meet or ABUG Leicester 2018.

Chris

Gosh, no interest in a twin drive? I'll put it on eBay at some point then or I might keep this one.
