I have like 3 or 4 Mac 400k drives (2 external units, and 2 internal)  Is
someone here adept at cleaning the old grease and re-greasing these drives?

Here's the systems I need them for:
Mac 512K - Internal drive & External Drive - Clean and Lube
Mac 128K - Swap 800K Internal Drive & Replace with 400K drive from Mac
Plus, plus clean and lube External Drive.

My Mac 128K has the original mainboard, but has a 1MB RAM Expansion board
sitting on top of the main board, and likely updated ROM to support the
800k Floppy drive.

I also have 3 or 4 800k drives that also need to be cleaned and lubed.
While it is probably something I could do myself, I've never had good luck
when trying to refurbish floppy drives, so I'm looking to find someone who
could do it for me.

Normal Person: Huh? Huh? What?
