These three fine specimens come from the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge. As such, they are museum property, and I have volunteered to repair them because I enjoy pulling my hair / teeth / fingernails out so much. I am especially fond of gouging my own eyes out with blunt and / or rusty implements as Hoglet and MAK1024 will tell you.

What have I let myself in for? We will find out in due course!

P.S. I was going to make an iceberg related metaphor, because there are a bunch more waiting to be restored, so this is the "starter for ten".

The typeface used on the keys is similar to that used on the Electron. I wonder if they were produced by the same manufacturer.

Jon,

Are you going to use your system as a test bed?

It's likely.
