What parts strippers is this? Did these drives use coax connectors as well?
If someone see a used M-series with coax connector please save it! I am
very interested in used parts as well.

I don't want to replace the current connector since the mating connector in
the drive controller needs it. I just want something proper if possible to
use when dumping the disks. But I don't want to spend a fortune of course.
If not possible I simply solder wires to the relevant points on the drive
circuit board.
