As the title suggests, I have for sale three external Amiga floppy drives. At least one should be working but I won't know until I test them.

I'm asking 25€ for the non-working and 30€ for working ones.

EDIT: drive on the far left is slim!

EDIT #2:
Please specify which drive you're interested in. To avoid ambiguity let's assign numbers to the drives:
#1 left side, slim
#2 mid drive
#3 right side, longest
#4 Senator

Since there's a lot of interest, I'll test the drives in a day or two, depending on my work schedule. At least two should be non-functional but I'm not 100% sure anymore.

The shortest drive is a slim variant and you will not be able to use it with a regular Gotek. The other two are standard size.

These are quite heavy so shipping for a whole drive will be 11€ worldwide. Shipping for just the case will be 8.40€.

My Amiga 1200 is acting up and I'll be replacing the caps as soon as I receive them in the mail. If you guys don't mind waiting, let me know.

I can also just sell them as faulty and be done with it.

No worries, I could wait for the gotek-friendly one with defective drive.

Reminded to all:
- expressing interest with PMs without first posting here is against the rules and your place in the queue becomes invalid
- when expressing interest just mention the item(s) you want - it just helps keep things tidy.

Thanks!

OK, guys, here's an update. I ordered a capacitor kit last night and it was shipped today. I expect to receive the caps next week and I'll be doing the recap as soon as possible.

I added a fourth drive to the original post. That's the last one in my collection.

Please specify which drive you're interested in. To avoid ambiguity let's assign numbers to the drives:
#1 left side, slim
#2 mid drive
#3 right side, longest
#4 Senator

Hi guys,

I feel like **** but I haven't finished the recapping of the Amiga so I can't test the drives.

Sorry to have kept you waiting for so long!

Since I can't test them, all the drives now sold as untested and presumed faulty.

Regards

..and received. ALL GOOD, pristine FDD metal case for my Gotek and would try re-utilise the internal mechanics for some other project (never waste amiga components)

Positive feedback released. With thanks
