Trio-Disc

Just an assembly of assorted parts into a coherent unit for my CloneE.  Switch selectable boot device either floppy, or floppulator. Plus  a second drive mounted like a duodisc.

 

Switcheroo the device select, lets you hook two items to one Disk II channel and switches the device select

Interesting products and also an interesting looking //e clone.  I remember seeing similar ones back in the mid 1980s.

The hardest part was actually

The hardest part was actually finding a suitable case.  I don't know what this originated from... couple of bays in the front, extra space above, did still have a power supply in it, but no markings whatsoever.  IT was built for durability though, front panel is 3mm aluminium. :)

 

This thing originated with a local importer.  Went to a school teacher, and ended up with me. It was a genuine 1 owner.  Had a 6502 in it when I received it, bunged an upgrade in it to get ProTerm to run.  Behaves pretty much like an enhanced IIe. I haven't done anything with the ROMS though.
