TEAC FD55* drives....

Post by Prime » Wed Dec 05, 2018 4:15 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone happen to have any TEAC FD55 series drives with a black front that they don't want, it doesn't really matter if they work as it's only the front pannel that I am after really....though they must be the type with the leaver on the right hand side.

I also have an FD55-GFR that is working but has lost the spring that holds the head down so the drive only works if you hold it down with your finger, so if anyone has a spare one of those......

Cheers.

Phill.

Possibly I may have one or more. I have half a dozen or so 40T SS floppy drives which don't seem to be of any use to anyone these days, but I only have a note of the supplier Watford, Cumana etc. and not the actual make of disc drive inside, so I would need to check them.

Thanks, Ian, much appreciated :)
