All this talk about 8 inch floppies got me to look at a unit I have 
stored away.  It is a rack mounted dual 8 inch floppy drive, SMS FWT 

Model - FWT0522I-R

It has one IDC connection on the back, 34 pin.

The formatter in the unit has numbers - 1001828-0001 H and 0003451-0001 
J written on it.

Bitsavers didn't have anything about the FWT05 model, does anyone know 
if a Qbus controller exists for this?

If it does perhaps I could get it working and hook it up to my MicroVax 
II, that would be an odd combination.
