Have a '286 PC?  I have a pick and place system that uses a 
massive proprietary board that is essentially a 286 PC,
but with lots of EPROM and battery-backed static RAM.
I got rid of all my 286 gear almost 20 years ago, and now 
worry just a little about spares.

I had the 36" fixed-head disk off a MEM-O-REE accounting 
machine, made by MDS.  I have seen some of the consoles off 
them in surplus stores many years ago.  If that is what you 
have, it is a bunch of TTL wire-wrapped into a small box 
with a keypad and displays.  It was not just the keyboard, 
it was the whole accounting machine (no CPU at all).
