Yeah, I think that was the original source of these packs. The Diablo 30/31
drives (used on the RK11-C controller before the RK05 was created) were
designed to use 2315 packs.

One of the people I buy PDP-11 parts from reports that he actually did this
(using the exact procedure you describe) BITD. Apparently there's some
multi-platter pack that has the same exact platter as the RK05 (2315) pack,
and he had some damaged RK05 packs, and moved platters from the bad
multi-platter pack to the RK05's.
