FWIW I don't know to what extent some form of time base correction was 
required; I think Toasters are still capable of "doing stuff" in other 
ways, and this would have been a standalone [optional] product.

I've got three machines with Toasters, and a 286 PC with time base 
correction hardware, but sadly no docs at present. The 286 PC seems to be 
similar to "your" setup, in that it's only really used for its PSU and ISA 
backplane; mine has a Progressive Image Technology "Kitchen Sync" board 
fitted, along with AmiLink VM-T and VM-TRR boards.

I've sent the person an email, anyway. If it's within driving distance I'll 
try and acquire the drives and card at least (I got the impression they 
might be interested in hanging on to the case/PSU) - given that old drives 
don't travel well I don't think I'd mess with shipping, though.
