I picked up at least two DSD manuals in my big haul last week. I think
they both have disks in them. I can send you the disk (and a mamual if you
need it) if you'll promise to return them. FWIW Thom has a NIB DSD drive.
I think I'm going to pick it up and try to use it on my PDP-8. I've been
reading the description of the DSD drives in the manual and they sound
GREAT! They will do IBM 3740 format, DEC RL-01/02 format and some kind of a
DD format. They also have stand alone diagnostics built into the controller
so you can test them with no computer attached (and no special computer SW!)
