I don't have one anymore... I used to have one but it was ruined in
a flood and discarded over 10 years ago. I still have the I/O
cable converters, though... a bit rusty but probably functional. I
never did have the PSU for it.

The dual PDP-8/M system at Ohio State that was used in the 1980s to
analyze horse urine for drugs (via the attached mass spectrometer) had
third-party dual-ported Diablo controllers (one each) and several
Diablo 31s. I wish I'd been in the right place at the right time to
catch it when they retired it, but I wasn't. :-(
