Meh, I bought this FD-502 for like $12-15 on fleabay (no fdc, tho), I'm sure 
i can probably find another one.
I'll just transfer one drive from one of them to make a double-unit, to keep 
one original, and then splice on the 2nd one,
and load it up with probably a pair of Mitsu M4853 DS/QD 5.25" fdd's. That 
will be an interesting unit :)
