7 track tape terminal

I have an extra Mohawk Data Services 7 track (!) tape terminal
available. Basically, it is a tape drive with a keyboard - oh the weird
stuff they used to do back then!

Anyway, this is a late 60s (probably) all transistor and core box, about
five feet tall and 300 pounds. It takes standard tapes. I don't think the
thing is completely working right now, as I can't get it to do much, and a
light blinks as in "something wrong!".

I have no docs on the thing. I should also say that the keyboard on this
thing moved the bar as far as how bad human engineering can get.

Anyway, I want to make it go away, so if anyone has stuff to trade (no
micros, please - (cruddy) big stuff or docs are good) or has a little cash
(were not talking much here folks - scrap value is probably only $100), we
can deal. I can deliver to VCFeast or anywhere near NY/NJ/CT/RI. I could
ship it as well, as I do have a sort of crate thing.

Let me know! Please, I need the room!
