3.5' Shugart DS/DD 720K double drive set.

Post by chriskgnr »

I am looking for two(or a double drive set) 3.5' DS/DD 720K Shugart(and only Shugart old drives). Are there any of these drives? I have the Cumana 5.25' 720K 40/80 Shugart double drive set and i hope that there is somewhere a 3.5' Shugart double drive set. I am willing to exchange it with an AP Plus 1 Interface, a BBC/Electron joystick, plus a VIEW cartridge. I am also willing to buy it, if the price is ok.

Yes. There is a Dutch guy who sells them.

I'm away from my PC right now but I can post a link. Works on the BBC just fine (also with every other Shugart equipped machine I have tried). Not expensive either.

Here is mine connected to an Elk via a PRES interface

I haven't bought the drives from Ben, but have bought a couple of other things from him, and always been good. :D

I have had a few things from Ben too. Always top quality and quick delivery.

The dual drive he makes works well with the PRES AP3/4

And many thanks to Dave H for upgrading my AP3 to an AP3/4.
