Thanks for confirming that, Marc. I just picked up my PRM-85 board today, and it looks like I should be able to purchase a couple of different models of HPIB 3.5" floppy drives from other collectors soonish.

Has anybody gotten around to sharing CAD models for a 3D-printable PRM-85 case yet, or shall I get to work on that task?
