Subject: Large computer rescue - any collectors in the VA/PA/DC/WV/NC
I am arranging a large vintage computer rescue, and
will be on-site Thursday and Friday to inventory the
equipment and make arrangements. There will be
scrappers coming next week, so time is off the
essence. From the most recent photos I have been
sent, it looks like there may be more material there
than was previously indicated, and possibly more than
I will be able to handle. It is likely that I can set
aside material for other collectors. I would be
looking to get firm commitments over the next few days
while I am on-site, as it may be difficult to get the
owners to hold on to it otherwise. Material that may
be available include Modcomp IIs, IBM 729 keypunch,
9-track tape drives, and possibly some Honeywell gear.
Please contact me if you have a serious interest and
ability to remove this sort of gear, about 4.5 hours
out of DC.
