Quote from: Bryce on 15:44, 24 January 15The other drive is a bit questionable. After fixing the dry joints, it spins at the correct speed and the head is searching, but there is a lot of play in the head movement due to it being old, was used a lot and also looks like it was stored in a damp place at some time. I'll try to convince it to work again, but it may be a lost cause.
Quote from: Bryce on 16:57, 24 January 15I managed to tighten up the spindle that moves the head and it's reading disks again So both are back working.I'm not sure how reliable this drive will be, because the whole frame that holds the disk is a bit rusted and sticks quite a bit. I disassembled it, gave it a clean and re-greased it, but it's still not great. I'll use it for a few days and see how it gets on.@Gerald : It's an EME150A, the one where the spin speed is a poti on the PCB, not in the motor. The more reliable one is an EME-155.Bryce.

I tried it this morning and it can't find the tracks any more. The EME-155 is still working fine.Edit: Doh! Turns out I was testing it with a damaged floppy! Both still work fine Bryce.
