UHOH! That means that I will have to move the thing! It's against the
wall! With three 74-pound terminals on it, no less! This machine ran
in 1980, when it was last used. Possibly, it has been eaten by the two-
foot long rats that live in our building. To restate what I previously
said, it needs a 220-v power source and I am trying to run it in an
area that only has 110-v plugs.
