Something as simple as engraved plexiglass will do, and that's very economical to order.
tomorrow we're getting another "first" for MARCH -- several Data General
Novas. We were promised other Novas a year or two ago, but the person
didn't (yet) come through. This latest rescue is from a plastics
manufacturing company that's closing its warehouse. It used the Novas
for production and also sold them as part of a commercial system.
The details, according to the benefactor:
>> Data General Nova-3, rack mount, 12" high chassis
>> Data General Nova 1200, rack mount, 12" chassis
>> Three "Point-4" Nova-compatible machines, rack mount, 6" high chassis
>> Assortment of spare 15" x 15" boards for the above, including
magnetic core memory
>> Sykes 8" floppy disk drives
>> Paper tape readers and punches
