El disco externo
While working on my retro project of an Apple //c, I found that this particular model had some peripherals created around the original design. These include a monitor, joystick, mouse and external drive. Among the latter the 5 1/4 external floppy drive is unique to other ones created by Apple, which had several models at that time.
The one on the Apple //c use the same drive mechanism as it’s internal one, and is very slim, so I decided to acquire one.
After the bid, I managed to get a good unit, which on arrival was a little dirty, as I show in the photos.
Of course this was another job for Retrobright, although really it was only lightly yellowed on the front.
took it apart, cleaned and after several hours was ready. Here is the result.
