So is the bottom line that there are no drive repair shops for eight inch floppy disk drives? 

Do any drive guru / repair folks hang out at the vintage computer festivals?

Absolutely. If you're on the east coast of the US, consider coming to VCF East this weekend; there will be many. If you want advice online, join any of the many mailing lists, such as cctalk or the MARCH mailing list on Yahoo! Groups (group name midatlanticretro).
