Resurrect Mac512 400KB floppy drive?
Cleaning house and came across my original Mac 512. Hasn’t been fired up in many years, figured I’d give it a try. Good news is the electronics (boards & CRT) are working! Bad news is the floppy drive is jammed in eject position. I have an external 400KB drive, it has same issue. Took the external drive apart and can see, as reported on the web, the original lubricant for all the hinges and sliders has turned to glue. Got it kind of cleaned & loosened up, but not enough to insert/eject freely. I’m certainly willing to disassemble further and keep trying, but also wondering if perhaps anyones knows of a good refurb service for my drives or source for refurbed drives? Thanks!
