Wanted: spare eject buttons for A3000D floppy drives

I'm looking for a couple of spare eject buttons for the floppy drives in A3000D's.

If you have any, please send a PM. Thanks.

Out of curiosity would they fit any Amiga disk drive or do you need a specific model?

The A3000D has specially shaped buttons because the slot and hole for the eject button is molded into the front bezel. It's a unique thing about the 3000's. Buttons from an A3000T floppy might work as well.

I'm not sure if the buttons would fit any floppy model, but I know they will fit Chinon FB-357A's, and I have two of those to replace a failed one in my 3000D, but I'd like an extra button or two, just in case.

A3000D and A3000T have same buttons (also same FB drive mechanizm)

those buttons are extremely rare, ive once bought a dead drive just for that button from US (which cost almost 40 bucks shipped :/)

With a little modification inside to the bracket you can mount regular 880k drives.. I did (had no choice lol) when i got my a3k.. only takes a few mins to drill some new holes for mounting .
