Ahh the old winchester drive controller wdc1772 and wd1772 well actually they control the stepper motor which in turns moves the read/write head

might be able to spare one as it's the only one I have :D

Re: Wanted - 2 x WD1772 floppy disk controller chips

Well I found the board with it on I already removed the cpu from it as well as some other ic's so yeah its up for grabs just give me a few quid for it and postage and we're good to go as they don't really tend to fail i only ever had 2 replace 2 about 15 years ag and I guess I won't need it so give me a shout

good luck with the pal and gal programmer btw
