they are all inserted into a special carrier-like
thingamabob that made it
easy to insert/remove the ROM packages and has a .1 or .01 microFarad
capacitor soldered betwen Vcc and ground on each chip... I guess that's why
they're heavier than normal.
Would this happen to be the _same_ carrier that the Epson folks used for
ROMs in the PX-8? If so, you might be able to sell some to PX-8 folks
that want to make their own ROMs.
