called "cwns", which is a modified version of "cw2dmk" to read
hard-sector (10 SPT) diskettes. I might be able to modify that to read
the VG 16 SPT diskettes, if the 1043-2 will work with the Catweasel.
It will not - but it has nothing to do with the cabling. I already
tried with my catweasel. I was able to read flux, but between the hard
sectoring and (possibly) different meta markers for the floppy sectors,
the .scp file is useless. I just got my Cypress board for a fluxengine
in the mail yesterday, but haven't set it up yet - maybe tomorrow. The
website for fluxengine indicates it ought to work.

something for the Vector 1
to read diskettes and transfer the contents out the serial port. I'd
rather attack it from the point of my media imaging system, and there is
a literal shoebox full of diskettes to image.
That was what I did back years ago.
