Looking for a ST419

Geez, the 419 was uncommon, even in it's own time.  And then, 
most of the ones I saw didn't work.  If you don't mind 'wasting'
part of the drive, I would think just about any 6-headed mfm
drive would work.

There's some difference (which I have been unable to quantify)
between different models of MFM drives (of equal or similar 
geometry) that allows some drives to work in some applications, 
but not others.

If there's anyone out there intimately familiar with the 
ST-506/412 interface, now would be a good time to offer 
some suggestions as to why this is so.
