Does anyone know where I can get a PCB that is used to insert into a 34 pin card edge connector (female) to plug 2 floppy cables together?

 

I saw some on ebay, but now I can't find them.

I for one would be interested in getting a couple of those myself. I looked hard for those a few months ago and could not find them.

I ran across a  lot of 10 for a few dollars just a few weeks ago and passed on them as I thought I had some.  well it turns out I had a couple but whoever had them before severed traces and jumpered a couple.  does not make since why as they did not appear to be jumpered for specific drive numbers.  so i'm on the hunt again.  If I find them I will let you know.

I know I've got a couple around here as well but couldn't find them. That's not suprising here at hoarder central. Didn't they call them biscuits?

I finally found some on ebay...  found 5 for almost $8 free shipping.

 

Have not found any more though..

Blaine Crandell had some for sale recently. . .but it looks like they are the ones you bought, so I guess this is OBE.  ;)

I think it is called ID34-to-CE34-IDC-adapter,

 

where ID34 here is for the 3.5" drive

(ID34 = 5.25" old style connector)

Nope.  it is a small, male, double-ended PCB connector.

It was called an “adapter board” by TI.  Here is a drawing of it from the diskette drive manual:
