My IBM Thinkcentre has only one 3,5" bay,CD and floppy, and I wanted to add a SSD hard drive while keeping the old disk as storage.
The computer is a special small form factor and the floppy drive has also a strange form factor.
It is a Sony MPF820 and its dimensions are L130 x W96 x T12,7mm
This thing is an adapter to install a thin 2,5" SSD in this [strange dimension} floppy bay (1,44MB heh, who needs that?)


This is just two side rails. There are holes to screw the ssd from underneath, but it wasn't possible in my setup, I had to screw it from the sides..
Print one as it is
Print another one but mirrored
Install and enjoy.
On the picture I show my setup besides an adapter for a regular floppy bay (Thing #10519, wider but shorter)

NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT A STANDARD 2.5" to 3.5" ADAPTER! It's NOT designed to fit to a standard 3.5" drive opening.

Excellent work. I'll have to try this sometime
