Re: can you give me a hand

Hi,
Let me try to get to what you mean or are trying to say.

You are looking for a friend that is wanting to buy Apple II disk drives.
These are the REAL Apple II 5.25 drives. Full height black face, the ones with the metal case and flat ribbon cable.

Condition of the drive is not important?

This is where I have question. Does this mean just the outside physical condition? Is it also important that drive works? Or can it be bad or dead?

He wants 3 of them. Can pay with PayPal.

Are you or him/her on EBay? The (EBay UK) had some for sale but they all went. Rather pricey as well.

If you could conform or correct anything I wrote it would help.

I, and several other people (I think), have a variety of working Apple ][ disk drives we could sell you. But you should know firstly that they are heavy, even the half height ones, so shipping can be expensive. You should really try to find them in your home country to save on shipping costs. Also, it was implied but not directly stated that you want 5.25 inch floppy disk drives, right? Send me a private message if you want to buy the drives from me.

Ok,
So you are looking for half height disk drives? These would be Apple Clone like drives.

Apple full height original is also ok.

You are not wanting the Apple drives with the DB 19(these are usually daisy chainable)

Half heights may weigh a bit less, but are much harder to work on to investigate.

Yes, most people do not want the problems with going thur customs. Right now it seems that the prices for the Apple drives has went up. It seems to be staying up there as well.

The shipping out the US is a killer. Just sent 2 drives to Spain and the cost was around $65.00 just for the shipping ONLY. Everything leaving the US has to go AIR MAIL. Is your friend still making any trips to you? This might be a longer range plan. If he plans to go there in the future.
