Looking for disk dumpers

As the post states, I'm looking for people from around the globe that have both the time, hardware and experience to dump old disks to d64 images. I know there are some old topics on this but I'm looking to compile a "current" list for an upcoming project.

If you have the spare time to dump disks, I just need your general location around the world to get an idea of the coverage we'll have should this idea get off the ground. I know there are a lot of people out there sitting on disks with absolutely no time to dump them so I'm hoping this may help get the Treasure Chest overflowing again ;)

Thanks!
Paladin/G*P

Hey, I can help in Montreal. Need to set up IEChost first, but I got the hardware. Also got a ZoomFloppy. Off to learn about Sailor's tools.

Map Updated and filling in nicely...
@mason should I add the rest of the transfer team members to the list as well or is their time limited at the moment?

I'm still looking for some US/Canada guys because transit times/shipping costs, at least here in the US, can be brutal when shipping from coast to coast.

Where are my UK folks at? :)

I have been hearing that shipping times from the UK to parts of EU are pretty bad right now (1 month?) from Vinny of Freeze64. Anyone the can speak to that? From the UK to North Carolina, USA is a week to the day right now which isn't bad at all though this was for small items (Freeze64 and Zzap!64)

Thanks for all the responses so far guys!

This man is a pro. And then we didn't even mention tapes.. In the tape area this man is a demigod.

Valby/Copenhagen, Denmark.

Plenty of people from DK already, but if needed, would be happy to help out.

Have: IECHost, XUM1541, C1541 & 1541-II, possibly soon 1571 (if replacing the power supply will fix it), DC2N for tapes.

Some experience with cleaning dirty/mouldy 5,25" floppies as well (3,5" are more difficult).

Also does plenty of Amiga disk ripping, and have quite a few disk drives and ripping solutions such as Greaseweazle, Kryoflux, Drawbridge etc.

Good initiative, looking forward to be on the map, so to speak ;).

I updated the map and also added a column for what equipment people had and filled that in if you mentioned it in your post as well as if you were able to dump tapes. I also added a notes column which I used to add your experience if you listed it in your reply.

Thanks guys!
