[rescue] QIC drive needed

As I remember, Sun QIC-150 drives, I believe Archive, would read/write QIC-24

Possibly only read, but I think read and write.

They may be easier to find.

Also, it might be cheaper to ship the drive without power supply, and get a
new one on the other end.

I've got one plus about 50 mixed 45- and 60MB tapes that will be FTAGH after
I've finally gotten around to reading and then wiping the tapes, but it is
rather heavy and shipping to the USA is likely to be prohibitive.
