PDP-12s (Re: PDP-5 Rescued!)

Now, now. I have one. At one point it was working almost perfectly. I
had to fix
one board and figure out a terminal interface for it, until I got lucky
later and scored
a current-loop interface board.

I had to reform the capacitors in the power supply at one point, after
blowing out
the big bridge rectifier.

I don't see that it would be worse (or better) than anything else of that

At one point it was working just fine. Currently it is mostly working, but
will not boot -- but I don't have time to fix it right now.
