I'm not sure about the 605, but I haven't seen a 602S or 603S in about 10
years.  I bought one, long ago, to rebuild an as-is D9090 I bought aeons
ago.  The refurb cost was $75!  I have never spun it up since it was repaired
and resurfaced.

One thing I wanted to do was to disassemble the "DOS" ROM on the D9060 board
and locate the drive geometry table.  It should then be possible to stick
in values suitable for other brands of drives, say, for an ST-225.  I don't
know that you would be able to use the entire 20Mb capacity, but I wouldn't
care.  I have *lots* of MFM drives, but not many Tandon <10Mb ones.
