Behold the ultimate floppy disk archiver

This guy bought a disk duplicator, gutted it and build an awesome autoloader to convert 5000 Amiga disks.

Pah! I thought the Lego version had much more 'Retro' appeal.

Too bad it didn't work, though...

The lego one definitely was cooler, sadly lego just wouldnt stay together well enough, or remain accurate enough to do the job.. at least not the lego I had, and I wasn't prepared to glue it.

In the end, the commercial unit used only 1 motor, compared to the 3 I had in the Lego one.. but it could use precisely folded sheet steel where I had technics beams ;p and the force the commercial motor can deliver (has a huge gearbox hooked to it) is really quite something.

On the plus side, sitting in the middle of the lounge floor building the lego one, surrounded by an ocean of sharp pointy lego bricks.. brought back a lot of memories ;p (Wheres the little block thing gone I had a mo ago.. It was right here.. ah.. I'm sitting on it.. again.. )

Only sad part is the LEGO solution didn't work. That would have made it PERFECT. LEGO (obviously) rules...
