Hey,

I'm looking at using the case to install an itx based home NAS server and don't want to desegrate a working model.

Many thanks

One of our members might be able to help you out, Japster has several 1541's, some of which I believe were very poorly! Try sending him a PM - see if he has anything - or I will for you?

I've got one in the garage which is knackered - it was one of two non-working ones I had that I combined the good bits of to make one working drive!  ;D

Would you consider selling it to me?

No, but I'd consider giving it to you! ;)

I'd just want the P&P paying for obviously... Unless you live near enough to Stoke to want to come and pick it up. PM me to sort the details out...
