Thread: WTB : NIM modules

  1. #1

    Default WTB : NIM modules

    Hey!

    I'm collecting NIM modules (I know, not strictly speaking a computer item but made by same companies, and often paired with PDP-11's and the like).

    Instrumentation modules for physics research like counters, analyzers, amplifiers, ADC's etc. by companies like Nuclear Data, Ortec, Canberra, Tennelec.

    Anyone has something like that floating around they might be willing to part with?

    Thanks for looking!

    I think I still have the old mass-spectrometer control board that came with my 11/23. I'll have a look later today.

    I might, but there's no guarantee that I'll see them again before the apocalypse - though I could stumble across them tomorrow. Possibly literally. I think I know where some CAMAC modules are, though.

    Ah, no dice. I guess it went to some other collector of random oddities in the last...gosh, eight years...

    Ah well, thanks for checking!

    Yeah, everything has shut down here too, since I made this thread. It'd still be interesting to know if people have anything like that laying around though!

    Oh, it's not that anything has shut down here*, it's just that I don't know where they'd be. So it's a matter of waiting until either (a) they turn up while I'm looking for something else or (b) I end up going whichever box they're in on account of having tripped over it. Wall to wall trip hazards, my shop.

    * Oddly enough, I was out today picking up a dining table and chairs that were made in Denmark in the 1960s. Interestingly, the Danish word for what I believe to be "furniture" is very similar to the Mexican Spanish word for the same. Must be a common root, or something.

    Well either way thanks for the effort and let me know if something interesting turns up!

    Wow that is pretty strange. Møbel/muebles. Never noticed that!

    Right you are. Amazing how many different languages have roots in Latin somewhere along the line.

    Along those lines, I have some minor repairs to do to the table. Got out my caliper gauge to measure the dowels and found that they're 0.5" by 2.5" - decidedly not metric. I can only speculate that the Danish furniture makers got their system of measurements from the same place that they got their word for furniture.
