Some Amiga HD-floppy drives have known issues, fe. a Chinon FB-357A with either burnt resistors or leaky SMD caps (C16, common failure point).
I meant that the floppy drives were all toast. Which I am personally sad about, because there were 2 in there that I am pretty sure were HD floppies, and I think I could have convinced Ray (the owner) to sell me one.

There are a lot of hard drives in the place, even some nice ones that would have been uber expensive when new, but time is not kind of spinning hard drives. I think of the 10 or so I've looked at this year, I maybe got 1 to mount.
