scsi floppy drives needed?!

The title says it all - dunno if this thread is ok to post here or not.If it isn't I want to extend my apologies to everybody involved.
I am in desperate need of a source for scsi floppy drives and would reeaaally appreciate it if somebody could help me out if there is a known source for those things somewhere.Google and the usual suspects came up empty.
Don't think it is ok to post a link - pls. just send me a message.

I actually have never seen a scsi floppy drive, and I've worked on tons of scsi based systems....

Check out Newegg. They have 'em.

And I hope this isn't considered advertising. I have no relationship with Newegg at all other than I occaisionally buy stuff from them and they haven't screwed me over.

Those aren't even remotely IT related boxes - they are controller boxes for some equipment and the smartass designer put scsi everything in there because it was the buzzword of the day at that time.
Needless to say the only buzz these days is coming from customers that can't be supplied with spare parts for their equipment.
The only one I know of is a TEAC FD-235HS and those can't be found anywhere in stock anymore I know of.
There is one external drive I know of but thats not really a good option.

Couldn't find anything at newegg - thanks anyway.
