I've tried 3 times to reply Shirker <shirker at mooli.org.uk> but keep getting
bounces...(regarding some Shoeboxes) So am posting my reply.
Also, can you please send me an alternate address?
Regarding your questions: I am not sure, but one of the ones I have may be
a EXP-2. It's got DD50 connectors (I also have the replacement cable that
would let you use HD50's in it...but I'm keeping that...that's still useful
to me) You have the part #? or a picture? so I can confirm? (it's got
the ridgy front panel...at least for the bottom part...) It would
definitely hold 1 5.25 drive...and it looks like it could hold another,
though I can't say how you'd mount it....I got the shoebox without any
drive mounted in it. It's a "spare" (I'm actually using it as a "power
supply" right now for a drive sitting on top of it, with the cover off,
that's a temporary solution 8-) . I should move it to another shoebox....)
If it's the right one, I imagine we could work out some trade/deal...
(I take it I'm shipping to the UK...so we'll have to find out how much that
is going to cost...this thing isn't light....)
