In the ever on-going attempt to consolidate space in the garage and related
warehouse spaces (read that - pay less rent!) I'm offering up another
random piece that is lurking about and is not a major item of interest to me.

A Tektronix 6130 workstation (circa 1984). I'm not horribly familiar with
it, but I'll tell you what I know about it. (going from a Tek brochure)

32016 CPU, 32-bit display list processor, 32081 Floating Point Processor,
1MB memory, 360kb 5.25 diskette drive, 20Mb hard drive, dusl RS-232
interface, IEEE-488 interface, LAN interface, UNIX derivitive operating
system (Utek?).

Known hardware in the warehouse includes: CPU chassis, console display,
graphics display (color I believe), keyboard, (at least one) box full of
extra boards and parts, asstd. docs and manuals...

I think (but don't hold me to this) I recall seeing a mouse and diskettes
somewhere but I'll have to go digging.

It was reportedly operational when it came to me a couple of years ago.
I've never tried to start it up. This may be a pre-production or
engineering model just judging from some of the tags/ID plates (or lack

...and what do I want from this??? Something interesting that fits in more
with my primary interests (PDP-8 stuff is good, or check the 'wish list' on
my web pages), or enough of a $$ offer to make it worth my while. (over and
above shipping costs, unless you are going to pick it up) B^}
