Microdrive felt pads

Postby issue5 » Wed Apr 07, 2021 10:03 pm

Hi, I'm new here and wondering if anyone is able to supply replacement felt pads for midrodrive carts as I still have a number of carts that would be nice to be able to use, but my homemade felt pads are not the best. Perhaps someone can supply them, or point me in the right direction? Any help greatly appreciated :-)

I can. Have sold a couple of thousand and used to have them on ebay, but it got too fiddly for the work involved and the sore fingers! I am happy to do some on special request though. They've worked very well for me to recover data. And a year+ on they still work.

I didn't get anything. Some other emails didn't get through earlier this week with no warning to the sender and nothing in spam. Let me know a string of 5 letters or so from your email address and I'll see if I can search for it.

Hi chr$, I've sent you the money for the microdrive cartridges, sorry for the late reply but your reply ended up in my spam - I've sorted that now, thanks for your help, really appreciate it.

My reply just now probably ended up in your spam too! I'm blacklisted somehow (due to other activity on the same server perhaps, as I don't spam).
