I replaced the drive with the floppy emulator. Even though your enclosure is a little larger than necessary, it looks like it works buslinkk for your purposes. Exactly what the doctor ordered although it would have looked a little nicer in a low profile one; lots of these old 3.
Pictures would be a plus. I think the easiest way to do this would be to use the switch to change which device has power, but I would like to know for sure. I could easily cut a hole to allow access to the ribbon so I could use it fdd other systems too.
Here’s pictures of it in the FDD1 enclosure: I’m very happy with the performance but it does appear rather naked. I think mine used to house a SCSI tape drive too. As you can see my solution makes a larger footprint than yours but my TRS M1 and System 80 have no USB port, so a self-contained 5 volt supply was necessary. An account of the adventure as forewarned: The emulator is for my Model 1 and System 80, not my Model 4.

The screw holes in the bottom of the emulator lined up with those on the bottom of the case so I could buslijk it in there well. So i can boot from the emulator and the drive A. It works very well, emulating a couple of floppy disk drives. A couple of these, for instance but not so yellow ;-: D Heather Very nice Heather.
In other words, package it up as self-sufficient external drive which will look tidy next to my TRS M1 or System
