Buy an old PC?
Not necessarily that old,
depending on your definition of "old". New
PCs and motherboards at least as recently as 2009 were still shipping
with ISA bus floppy controllers. Examples:
My desktop machine has a floppy drive, I installed it just in case I
want to inspect and retrieve some data from old floppies I have.
I still have some old backups made in floppies which I wish to
retrieve one day.
I would make dd copies of those whilst you can - floppy disks don't
