I've had this thing kicking around for a very long time and could 
never figure out a use for it.  It's an ALF 811 diskette copier and 
copies 96 tpi 5.25" diskettes.  It seems not to care a bit if the 
floppies are FM or MFM or if they're DD or HD.  It will NOT copy 48 
tpi media.

It's eBay item  320050592195.

It's kind of cute, but since there is no way to retain an image of a 
diskette, just the physical media, it hasn't been terribly useful.

I do note what looks like an empty socket for a MAX232 next to a 
header on the PCB, so it's possible that there's an RS-232 interface  
that I'm not aware of.

Cheers,
Chuck
