    Round cap version as seen on later DP-CDE drives. It can be trashed, corroded, cut in half, whatever. What I need is the end cap for tool design, and that squared-off section of the body where the...

    Jay,

    You might consider putting some prices on some of these items. Some folks might be reluctant to make an offer for fear of offending the seller. If we know what you consider reasonable, we can...
