I've got two RL02 units. One is a parts unit and has an access plate for
the door solenoid. I can open it. The other has no access plate nor is
there a cutout for one. How do I open this cover with the power off? This
is a newer unit as it has head lock screws on the bottom of the drive.
The second question has to do with rack mounting. I want to mount this in
a H960 cabinet but will obviously need to slide it out to replace packs.
All the unit has is a thin rail on both sides that is riveted to the unit.
It looks like chassis slides were there originally. Does anyone have
either the DEC part # for the slides or a contemporary part # for one that
I need to read a couple of Signetics 82S215 bipolar PROMs with my old Data
IO 29B / Unipak 2B. But it needs a 351B-068 adapter.
Does anyone has information regarding this adapter?
I did find an old post in DATA_IO_EPROM at groups.io mailinglist that a man
named Alfred Marin had boards. I even found his email but it bounced.
Any other pointers in this subject?

seemed to be uses synonymously.

Also, except for the CCRMA F4 at Computer History Museum, does anyone

I've become interested in ZCPR2, 3, 33, and 34, and am surprised at how
difficult it is to locate them online. Or maybe I'm just an idiot. Are they
out there somewhere?
It looks like ZCPR3 was on SIG/M volumes 184 to 192, but those specific
volumes seem to be missing from the SIG/M archives I can find.
I'm specifically NOT looking for NZ-COM or Z3PLUS.

That site has NZ-COM and Z3PLUS, but I've dug through it and cannot find
ZCPR2, ZCPR33, or ZCPR34. It's possible that they are there somewhere and I
just didn't find them.
Apparently NZ-COM and Z3PLUS are based on ZCPR34, but are fancy
auto-installing things with no source code, whereas what I'm looking for is
the original ZCPR2, 33, and/or 34 distributions that included source code.

I sent these to the list a while back, and never added them to the CHWiki once
we gained access to it; I have now added them there:
Note that i) they are handed, so one needs an L and a R (I have extra lefts,
and would like to trade some for rights), and ii) the same slides are used on
other DEC drives, e.g. the RA81.
Hi to all!
I'm looking for a boot medium for my NCR 7500.
It is the model with one cassette drive (standard MCs) and
the monitor in vertical position.
I think this model is called 7510 and there should have been
at least an OS "BASIC +6".
Would anyone like a bluebox PCB or two?
This project was inspired by Don Froula's ProjectMF in which he
presents a PIC-based bluebox and PCB (handed out at HOPE in 2008). A
big reason I like AVRs more than PICs is because the development software
is OSS and free. So I reimplemented Don's bluebox in C for an AVR
ATtiny85. The PCB started off an a drop-in replacement, but evolved into
something designed to fit into a Hammond 1591XXM box instead of
functioning as a lid for a Radio Shack 230-1801 box. The Hammond box also
comes in transluscent blue!
The firmware code is done. I just have to do some tweaks once some
test PCBs are made because on the prototype, I wired up the keypad a
bit strangely. The code implements a 13-key bluebox, a DTMF keypad, a
redbox for US, Canada, and UK, greenbox, and 2600 dial pulse. The PCB
needs work to correct some early design decisions that turned out to be
