Big Iron in Syracuse

Some people have asked for a repost; here's a little more info.

This equipment is located at Northeast Surplus, 440 Shonnard St. in
Syracuse. Phone 315 677-5246

The people seemed quite willing to have visitors. They appear to deal
with lots of PC's and LaserJet printers

Preference is for skid lot sales of things. They seem a little
frustrated with "retail sales" though its not a big shop.

I have no idea of what they want for the mainframes.

I saw a skid of large mostly fixed frequency monitors that they
suggested $50 each (for 8). If anyone was interested, these could be
split up among several buyers. I am about 4 hours away in Canada.

Original message was:

I'm not sure whether there's any value to you in this or not, but I saw
a large
set of big blue boxes at a wreckers last week. I didn't make a full
but there were several boxes marked 3390. The whole system appeared to
there, in excellent cosmetic shape. Probably 10 or 12 cabinets
five feet high and 3' x 3' wide and deep each.

I also saw some VAX 6000-650 items, DEC H9644, TU81, a Data General and
some other DEC peripherals. These are all in Syracuse NY.

regards, Dan C
