Shit, I should've been more clear. I only intended to find photos  
similar to the trays for each machine. In the case of the F50 there  
are in fact several styles, but each are essentially mechanically  
interchangeable (barring the differences between SCSI and SSA sleds).

There are apparently dozens of different styles of sleds which are  
visually similar to the ones for the B50 and I cannot be certain  
which are mechanically compatible with it. There are different  
heights (1", 1.6", 2"), apparently some with card-edge connectors,  
some which just secure the drive directly to the backplane, similar  
to a SUN spud... etc.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you wound up with the ones you need.
