. I've never tried this, but it should be very easy if you have the soldering skills. . The stepper part looked/sounded like it should be very easy. The switch just sets a point (you should be able to find a schematic online) high (5 V) or low (0 V) and you use what sounds to be a readily available pulse to fire the stepper each revolution of the disk. . If I understood, she just rewired the tape recorder head with the floppy head. The hardest part of that, and the whole project, will probably be connecting to the ribbon cable. . But I'm no expert.
