Rescued a pdp8/e

Chatting to an old university colleague at the weekend I discovered a pdp8/e chassis on the way to the skip so I managed to save it.

The less good news is that it's just the bare chassis/power supply/front panel/single omnibus. 1 or 2 broken switch paddles but not too serious (just the pivot pins I think). So I'm in the market for some boards if anyone is willing to sell some. I've got various memory boards and a M865 I/O but nothing else. Would anyone like to sell me a cpu board set please? Or single boards of course but I'd love the whole lot! You don't see many 8/es going now so it's be good to get another one up and running.

Hi,

Well done on getting that. Very nice find.
There is someone in the UK who seems to have a warehouse of PDP-8 boards he is selling on ebay. Not cheap but they don't seem to turn up too often from other sources.

Cheers,

Andy.
