Wanted - Various Items

Post by t0nyt »

Hi All

I thought it would be worthwhile me listing a few items that I'm on the look out for in 2024 in the hope that someone reading this may have any of the items to sell please:

Working MDV2 (read/write/format)

A floppy disk controller with no built-in memory (and preferably no, or the latest, TK2) so I can use my floppy drives & gotek with the excellent memory expansion (and latest TK2) I purchased from Chri$

QL Cavern - Complete Package

QL Pawn - Complete Package

I know it's a long shot that I'll be able to get any of these items (I do keep a watch on eBay), but if anyone has anything on the list they'd be willing to part with please let me know

EDIT: Edited to add MDV2

Many thanks
Tony

I thought it would be worthwhile me listing a few items that I'm on the look out for in 2024 in the hope that someone reading this may have any of the items to sell please:

A fully working microdrive to replace my MDV2 drive (mine can only read)

A floppy disk controller with no built-in memory (and preferably no, or the latest, TK2) so I can use my floppy drives & gotek with the excellent memory expansion (and latest TK2) I purchased from Chri$

A complete and intact copy of Psion chess (I had this BITD and would really like it in my small collection)

A riser leg (I have 2 but would happily purchase a set of 3)

2 or 3 Transform MD storage boxes

BJ the Return (working with matching code sheet) - I have one but not the code sheet

I know it's a long shot that I'll be able to get any of these items (I do keep a watch on eBay), but if anyone has anything on the list they'd be willing to part with please let me know

Many thanks

I have Psion Chess (the later one without Sinclair branding and I think it may have dealt with extra RAM better the original, but don't quote me on that). I did offer it on here and have since found the thin sticker for the cart, so it's complete. I can sort you out with Transform boxes too.

I wouldn't worry about the 3rd foot. Later QLs only came with 2 even though there was still space for 3 in the polystyrene packaging.

Ask me about felt pads - I can cut them to size and they have proved excellent for mdv data recovery.

I did PM to join the queue, but don’t know when/if the next production run will be and maybe someone has a spare sitting around (unlikely I know)
