This Tandy 1000 Internal Floppy Drive Adapter allows you to install a 5.25" Floppy Drive in Tandy 1000's that send power over the Floppy cable (THIS ADAPTER IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH HX "Flipped" STYLE PIN-OUT). This adapter removes the power from the floppy cable so you don't destroy your precious floppy drive. Tandy used to notch the 5.25" section of their floppy cables to prevent this but many of the cables have been replaced due to failure.
Tandy 1000's that have power supplied via the Floppy Cable include the SL/2, TX, TL, TL/2 and TL/3.
WARNING: Please check your Tandy 1000 cable config BEFORE using my adapters - Some Tandy 1000's (eg TL/3) have both the HX Style "Flipped" pin-outs and Standard Shugart style Pin-outs on the same Floppy Cable. Many 1000's have 12v in the Floppy cable and it will damage your drives and or system if you use these Adapters incorrectly!
If your SL/2, TX, TL, TL/2, TL/3 Floppy cable has the Ground pins on any of its connectors "flipped", please see the Documentation linked on this page for how to modify the Floppy connector (it's easy).

All you need is a compatible Standard 360kb DSDD 5.25" Floppy Drive. Disk drive power is supplied from your Tandy power supply.
I made these because many folks want to replace a dead Floppy Drive in their Tandy 1000's but due to the non-standard power-over-cable-design were unable to find a compatible replacement drive.
All items are fully assembled as shown.
