This is the left side view of the DF32 disk drive. The drive motor (1/10 HP, 1800 RPM, 2.2 amp) is hanging below the black disk case. The ribbon cable leading from the card near the power connector used to be covered in foam but it deteriorated so I had to remove it. This disk picture (180K) shows the original cable covering. The black bars on the side are the chassis slides for holding it in the rack but allowing it to be slid out a couple feet for maintenance but still held into the rack.
Feel free to contact me, David Gesswein email@example.com with any questions, comments on the web site, or if you have related equipment, documentation, software etc. you are willing to part with. I am interested in anything PDP-8 related, computers, peripherals used with them, DEC or third party, or documentation.
