Thread: Dec equipment available

  1. #1

    Default Dec equipment available

    Unfortunatly it looks like I'm going to have to downsize (again) so it is time to get rid of my hardware collection, see below.

    I'm in UK post code area GU34.

    MicroVAX 3100 model 10 SCSI + Floppy
    MicroVAX 3100 model 38 SCSI
    MicroVAX 3100 model 76 SCSI
    VAXserver 3100 model 90 SCSI + CD
    VAXserver 4105 SCSI + DSSI (2 off)
    MicroVAX Storage Expansion Units (including CD, DAT, TZ30, and some HDD)
    PDP11/23 (also have 11/73 CPU) - used to be a VAX 11/780 console (I didn't have space for the whole 11/780!)
    DEC Rainbow FDD + HDD + Graphics (repair)
    DEC Rainbow FDD (repair)
    DEC Rainbow Documentation + Technical Manuals
    Alpha Personal Workstation 433au (system unit only) + PBXGB + DE500 + PBXDA + ISP1040
    VT220 (amber)
    VR290
    LK201 Keyboards + Mouse + couple of boxes of cables

    Do you have any spare DSSI disks that would fit a VAX 4000?

    Sadly no, it would make clustering the 4000 model 105s so much easier if I had a quorum disk!

    About 2u rack mount, I think it is a 6 card cage. There are no peripherals. I've collected a few PDP bits over the years but never powered it up. It should boot to the ODT console if it is the same as the 11/24.

    I still have the AXP 433u that I think you were interested in at one point, I've managed to hang on to it so far but think I may have move house again in the near future!

    I would be interested in a few bits, but not sure when I can get to GU4 to collect.. Not I think the AXP but MicroVAX CD Drives and other bits.

    Just found an LA50 and LA210 printer - the latter is unboxed but almost unused (I was going to put almost new but that was a long time ago!)

    Oddly, I would be interested in the printers. Whats your deadline on getting rid? I need to make space!

    I am definitely interested in a few of these bits. I can't get there for 2 or 3 weeks though. I noticed Dave (g4ugm) is interested in a few bits too, I could bring those back to him as he is close to me. The bits I am interested in are:

    Model 90
    4105 (possibly, depends on size of enclosure)
    Rainbow stuff (you don't have a Rainbow system unit, or just the main board perchance?)
    VT220
    Manuals (depending on what they are)

    Regards
