In other words, package it up as self-sufficient external drive which will look tidy next to my TRS M1 or System Are there or were there external 3.

D Frank S How does your switch work to change which disk drive is being used? As you can see my solution makes a larger footprint than yours but my TRS M1 and System 80 have no USB port, so a self-contained 5 volt supply was necessary.
Pictures would be a plus. It works very well, emulating a couple of floppy disk drives.
It might be worth mentioning that the HxC also comes in a cased version http: A couple of these, for instance but not so yellow ;-: I think mine used to house a SCSI tape drive too.
