[Coladam] Busted ADAM drives?

What with all this talk of ADAM floppy drives, I was curious... how many of the 
different flavors of floppy drives were produced? And as a side how many of you 
out there have bad ADAM disk drives? A much as we all like DDP drives ;) it 
seems like keeping as many of these in working condition as possible would be 
beneficial. I myself have two drives (unmodified currently) and they are a 
little flaky. One works mostly after it's warmed up a bit, and the other I 
wouldn't want to trust to write anything with. I've also got Rich Clee's PM 
floppy disk controller that doesn't quite work right (although I haven't played 
with it yet since you lent it back to me Rich :( ).

We just sold our house (yay), and are in the process of trying to find a new 
place. Once we get settled in to a new house I think I'm going to go "get my 
ADAM on" (as Jim put it) with some hardware tinkering.
