I picked up three more tape drives for parts. Don't know if they work
but one may be useful for your 3/60. I can check one out if you can use

I have two Wangtek 5360 ES and one Archive 2150 S.

Also I have a 3/60 with OS 4.1.1. I can make a copy of the boot tapes 
if you need them.

Also I have a Eprom burner so can burn a Eprom if you point me to the 
software you want. I will have to fire up my 3/60 and see what
prom version I have. I remember burning an updated prom for one of my 

Every time I see a tape drive in the junk I check the rubber and if its
good I grab the drive.
