65368-inch floppy drive for Germany
- Nov 19, 2007Someone from north Germany near Hamburg asked me for an 8-inch floppy
drive. He wants it for teaching and for show - it need not work. He
said that he could pick up in San Francisco CA, while he is visiting
I told him the cost of shipping from NJ to CA would be notible
(probably $25 US). When he mentioned "Germany" I noted the costs of
shipping from the USA, any duty or customs or VAT, etc. etc. I
suggested he look in Europe for one.
We have some members with European connections. Anyone have a dead
8-inch floppy drive they could offer to a German instructor? Also,
does anyone have experience in trying to take something like that
through a US airport or into Europe? Of course I ship stuff like that
to Europe but not by commercial airplane!
Look below for my email address.
