Yes I do for that model, in fact (as of tomorrow morning) I will have
schematics and maintenance documents for every DF32 version ever made...
including more DF32s, and a ton of more PDP 8 stuff (will update)... and...
I believe I am VERY lucky to have a wife and children that don't mind
co-existing with such hardware (it is in its own room)!

I can answer your question when you tell me:

What kind of modules are in your DF32 - purple M series with "G", or read
"R" series with "G".
