Modified 5.25" floppy drives arriving for sale

Post by mr.vince » Tue Jan 07, 2014 6:35 pm

We have received half a dozen of pre-modified 5.25" drives from John from the US.

I will be checking these soon (I am sure they are fine, but they've come a long way so...).

These are used, but well aligned and cleaned drives. They may have marks on front bezel and or bumps in the thin metal shield. You just can't get new ones, so these are refurb as drives can be.

These work well with KryoFlux and will read and write e.g. C64 disks and of course also side one, which can't be accessed by unmodified drives.

We haven't yet calculated the sales price, but we plan to give them away at cost (drives, labour, freight etc.) plus a safety margin and VAT.

We are making this announcement so you can subscribe to this thread and be informed once we put them up.

Subscribe to this thread. All tested and ready for sale, not sure if these go to the store or will be offered here. We want to make sure these go to KF users, not to re-sellers or eBay or whatever.

Thanks, I subscribe to this thread. I bought my kryoflux back in aug/sep-2011, but just started using it. It's works very good with my old PC/DOS, Apple II and Commodore disks. I also had some Ericsson DTC disks (ABC 800) that I will try to read. I now go through the forum to learn more about how to use kryoflux. I have some 5,25" floppy drives that works, but understand that I need a modified one to read the back side of the disks for C64 and Apple II.

I'm also interested. But I haven't found out how to subscribe to this thread. I'll just post this and click on "Notify me" (which is probably the "subscribe" you mentioned? but it requires me to reply first...)

Subscribe is right at the bottom of this post on the left!

Anyway, might as well add a 5.25" drive to my Kryoflux so subscribed as interested even though I have no disk drive for my C64 yet :)

Interested and subscribed! I'd mostly be doing C64/A2/A8 stuff...

Looking forward to the next batch of Kryoflux to be made (sounds like February).
