I'll put my hand up on this.
The 11/60 processor was stored in better conditions and consists of two BA11 style boxes.
Can you share with us the complement of modules installed in the two BA11-P?
I'm curious as to how "stock" the configuration was.
I picked up a Cekit 8085 microprocessor trainer last weekend, model MT-01.
Google seems to be of no help - has anyone else here got one of these?
There's nothing really specific that I wanted to know, but it's just odd
that there seems to be no info out there at all about it.
Some of the writing on the PCBs is in Spanish, and it says on the back that
it was made by Cekit for EKI - but throwing that into the Google pot
doesn't appear to be of any help.
I'm not even sure how old it is. The CPU, I/O chip and some of the logic is
dated 1983/84, but then there are a handful of Goldstar 74LSxx ICs with
90xx codes on them. It may be that Goldstar just didn't follow date code
conventions, or it's quite possible that it really is that recent (and some
of the ICs just came from much older stock).

I sent the person an email, never heard back.
Ditto for one of the people here who said they'd sent the person an email - I
sent them an email, asking if they'd heard back, never got an answer from them

Subject: IBM System/32 - web response
To: <mike at corestore.org>
Maybe this is no longer relevant since I can't tell from the web page
how recent the post is... I am selling my house and in the back of the
garage is a complete System/32 that was working when I stuck it there
and covered it. Much other stuff is in front of it so I haven't seen it
in a while. It's free for the taking to anyone willing to come to East
Lansing, Michigan and pick it up. If you aren't interested then it'll
just go to the scrappers because I need to get the place ready for
inspection. The junk haulers should uncover it in a day or two at which
point I could take pictures.
I also have a PDP-11/60, if you know of anyone interested. Same deal -
free, come pick it up. The 11/60 main box has been stored in a dry
basement along with two RL01 disk drives (in free standing cabinets, not
rack mounted) along with a box of flat interconnect cables. It was used
in a cardiac unit to run heart monitors and has an extra card cage full
of interface cards. Also there's 3 PDP-11/34s in a rack in the garage as
well. All this stuff has to go in about a week to 10 days, unless
arrangements/promises are made and kept.
If you're interested in any of this stuff, or could refer me to someone
who might be, I would love for this stuff to go to a good home. Yup, I
started with FORTRAN and 80-column punch cards. Thanks.

Oooh, good catch. I hadn't looked carefully at those faint images, I was just
looking at the brochure which had the separate images.
> Not nearly as cool as an Enable :).
Yes; the ENABLE was pretty clever: it used an MUD backplane as an EUB
backplane, to hold the ENABLE and stock EUB memory cards; both the CPU _and_
DMA devices were on the incoming UNIBUS, and the ENABLE could tell whether a
read-write cycle was from the CPU, or a DMA device (if you look at the UNIBUS
spec, there's just enough to do that, even without being able to see NPG), and
routed it through the appropriate mapping, depending.
So there was an odd board from Able up on eBay:
Anyone know what it was? From the Able product summary it looked a bit like an
Interlink/U or perhaps an Enable - although the detailed chip layout didn't
look like the illustrations of either. Anyone know?
Also, speaking of the Able ENABLE, I've recently discovered more about it, and
now understand pretty much how it works.
