Looks like a series 1 to the left, maybe there are 4978 terminals/keyboards too?

Stash will be sorted out early next Saturday morning in Katy, TX. If you are interested in carpooling with Xmit, there might be 1 seat left. Please send him a PM ASAP. If you are out of town and want to come down from the Michigan area, please send a PM to JP!

Looks like it's going to be a crowd at this point. Let's see what we find.

Just a quick reminder that round 1 of the Houston haul will take place @ 10-10-30am (all day) on Saturday 1/19! The keyboards most likely will find new homes quickly but there are literally hundreds of towers and monitors and boxes filled with old computer books and manuals :shock: pm me for details. No way we can even make a dent in this pile so if you can't make it Saturday I can still put you in touch.


Note: this is the nearly empty unit. The main unit though is 15' x 30' and is filled basically to the ceiling by a master hoarder.

A master hoarder indeed. Those weighty CRTs piled on high, over better things, gives me the heebies. But such is the way of a hoard in the rough.

Best of luck with the harvest!

Man, I wish I could've been there! It seems so fun to just dig and loot stuff. Too bad I'm in northern California. Wish the best of luck to everyone who's going! (someone get me a Model M/F if there's one from the pile for shipping price pls)

Hope you may find many model m's and f's in good condition! And maybe a few rarities.
