LOL! I assume that you already know this birdie, but I'll be happy to hook you up if not.

Have you determined whether any of your 6030 floppy drives are "extra"? If not, I think that there's exactly the right amount of open rack units in my DG rack to hold my PDP-8/M and a mil-surplus Chalco high speed paper tape reader I have that could be fun to interface to the PDP-8 and/or the Nova. But if I'll be hosting a 6030 drive in the rack then I'll need to come up with a different plan!
