Description

Object is a disk drive cabinet for a removable disk pack. Much of the mechanism that should be in the bottom of the cabinet is missing (no motor, no air pump, no electronics). Attached to the bottom is a long, heavily-shielded ribbon cable and a braided ground strap. Two brackets, a plastic filler, and a screw that was loose inside have been bagged and attached.
