Have you done a web search and maybe some sites like this:
Zip Drive Iomega | Kijiji: Free Classifieds in Ontario. Find a job, buy a car, find a house or apartment, furniture, appliances and more! (http://www.kijiji.ca/b-ontario/zip-drive-iomega/k0l9004)

PS: What Mac and OS will it be planned to be used with???

yes i have done searches on craigslist and kijiji the problem is the people selling them in 2015 have no idea what they are or how they work and frequently place ads that are incorrect ie: telling someone its a scsi zip when it is a usb zip etc etc

i do not need to specify to you which mac os it needs to work with becasue thats irrelevent
i need a SCSI zip drive.
thats all thats needed to bedescribed.. meaning that it connects via scsi..
SCSI is universal.

"SCSI is universal."

Yeah right… :rolleyes:

With the exception being that it needs a proper connection, and possibly proper termination as well as proper software to be able to work. :D

I have/had one, but it's so old I finally threw it out. I think I had a whopping 250mb cartridge too. Why would you want something with such a small amount of storage, out of curiosity?

I have a VST Zip 100 drive that used to go into a slot in a PowerBook. The model number is ZIPG32. Is this what you're looking for?

I don't believe those were SCSI ZIP drives, but fitted and ran in the expansion Bay of the G3 Powerbooks.

There is one at Amazon.com. It is an external scsi/parallel version. I don't think it's new thought. No harm in try to contact the supplier.

I know this is an old post, but do you still need a SCSI Zip 100 drive? I have one, along with over a dozen zip 100 disks AND a Zip 250 with multiple 250 disks, firewire attachment, etc. ... if your interested let me know. I will post right now about these drives and the zip disks with photos - they've been sitting in storage and looking for a good home!

WOW!!! SCSI Zip drives and "firewire attachment" all in the same sentence. I didn't think they were even close or even existed together in the same generations. But that would be neat.

Yes I know it was insane idea and honestly was sometimes flaky - its Firewire400 connection - I posted my ZIP stuff here if you want to see - https://www.ehmac.ca/mac-related-accessories/144817-zip-drives-100-250-lots-disks.html
