3.5" Drive Controller for Apple iie Platinum Wanted

Hello All,

I'd like to connect a 3.5 inch drive to my Apple iie Platinum.
Wanted: Drive Controller
Wanted: 3.5 inch drive

Also interested in:
Wanted: Joystick
Wanted: Genuine Apple 80 column expansion card with 64k memory

(do these come with socketed chips? the one I have now is a no-name brand, with socketed chips, but for collector sake, I'd rather get a genuine apple part, prefereably with socketed chips, so if anything burns out, it can be replaced.)

Recently joined apple fritter, as I pieced an Apple iie Platinum together from Ebay.

Busy learning assembly language on it, for fun.

Thanks.

UPDATE::

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/390551399415?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_500wt_1414

I just found this today... with a little investigation, that second card listed is a LIRON.

I got both cards for $20 with free shipping.
I think I got a sweet deal?

Blimco,

The card on the right is a 64k 80 Column Card.
The card on the left is an I/O Controller Card, but the cable is missing.
It is not a Liron.
If it were a Liron, you would know.
It says Liron right on the front of the card.
I am afraid that this one does not.

Sorry to give you bad news. Sad

Steven

You're right. It's the second generation 5.25 disk controller card. They look very similar.

Still a good price for the two cards.

I can swap them for the older disk controller card, and no name extended 80 column expansion card I have right now.

I'll put the ones I have now back on eBay.

I have everything your asking for. However the joystick is CH brand and beige, not Apple and platinum. Interested?
