Update: I got the drive, it is labeled TM848E, and it has two black cables going to the heads, so it looks like a two-sided drive. It is also in good condition (visually at least). It will be some time before I'm able to try it out.

...Tandy certainly had the clout to get cost reduction deal for their expected volume.

Frank Durda IV gives the best public explanation I've read of that in an old post on comp.sys.tandy.

But then there's always the TPI angle (JDallas already knows what those three letter stand for.... Texas Peripherals, Inc).
