We cannot be held responsible for what happens in these trading forums or for deals done via PM. This must be done at your own risk. If you aren't comfortable with this - make the trade via an alternative site which can apply safeguards of their own. 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 - Viglen branded Single Floppy Disk Drive, Doube Sided 40/80 Track Switchable for BBC Microcomputer

Viglen branded Single Floppy Disk Drive, Doube Sided 40/80 Track Switchable powered by the BBC Microcomputer Power outlet. This offer for sale is for the Single Disk Drive and its Data and Power Cables only

The unit is clean and the Disk Drive works perfectly for me but though it is 40/80 Track switchable, I have only ever used it in 80 Track Mode with a BBC B with DFS2.2M2.

The asking Price is £45 if you collect and pay in person. I am also going to list the BBC B that I use with this device and will be happy to combine the Delivery charges if you buy both items. Payment by Personal Payment on PayPal will be acceptable.

I am not interested in selling this on eBay and have priced it deliberately to deter an opportunistic trader. I will also list it on Stardot in the hope that it goes to a fellow enthusiast of this historic Computer. I would also prefer for it to go to a UK owner because of the cost and risk of overseas shipping but I would consider this if the cost of shipping and insurance was borne by the buyer.
