I'm not Sellam, but I've seen at least a dozen go through Purdue's salvage
op in the past two years or so. Not all were "usable" state, but quite a
few were. BTW, these weren't just ADM3's, they were also "ADM"s (no
number) and ADM5's and ADM3+s. I've got two or three of them between a
friend and me.

And of course, "not usable" means "could be repaired", but since there
were plenty of working units available, and I had better thing to do with
my time (like classwork, my paying job, and working on gathering a
VAX/Micro-PDP11 collection), I didn't spend a whole lot of time looking
thinking about fixing any.
