I would LOVE to find one of those old Gould SEL machines with a Graftek Terminal and CAD system! Those old terminals were designed and built in Colorado with enough smarts on board to do rendering (shading), Dynamic 3-D rotations of part models and the like. The old Graftek Cad/Cam system was a "Patrick Hanratty" dirivative rewritten to be shoe horned into a Gould SEL 1mb memory mapped machine...a move that about killed Graftek after Unisys aquired them and requested Graftek to RE-WRITE the entire package double precision and compiled for the new Sun/HP etc workstations of the time.

I started a webpage about SEL/Gould history, you can find it here
http://www2.applegate.org/~ragooman/computers_mini_sel.html

I worked there in the early 80's and I started to gather material and memorabilia from others that worked there also. I have some photos,images along with info on the product history.
Feel free to take a look
