I am just curious what the size of the slots are. I have a couple of cards
that I thought were S-100 when I got them, but they are a bit narrower than
an S-100 card, and the fingers are wider. The dimensions of these cards are
8 3/4 " wide, 4 1/2 " high (excluding fingers), 7 5/8" finger width with
5/8" to the edge of the card on left side (component side up) and 1/2" to
the edge of the board on the right. The one I just grabbed says "638493
Digital Timer" on the solder side of the board.
