Sorry, folks, I only had the one. It was a giant contraption made by
Diebold (they make cabinets for banks, ATM machines, etc.)

BTW, Urban Ore (the retail outlet of the Berkeley dump) has a 4 drawer
fireproof file cabinet with three drawers configured for 5.25" floppies;
but the top drawer is mangled (by somebody without appropriate skills
opening it without a key)

Did anyone mention the essential item of a good truck loading dock?
Rail siding?
Cargo landing strip?
