I mostly deal in Mac and old S-100 equipment (pointers later). But I also obtain other old computers in the process. Digital Equipment Corp. (DEC) items for instance.SGI and Sun systems. Also, we list related equipment like terminals, tape media, and so forth. Despite their age, there is still interest in these systems.

On other pages:

If you are interested in these systems, you might be interested in other older computers. Check my my S-100 Web page to see all my S-100 (Altair, IMSAI, etc.) docs. Also check my Intel Multibus, STDbus and VME lists of docs and hardware I have.

Meanwhile, I have other activities on this Web site: Check my Home page for links to other sections on Astronomy and Optics; Apple Macinstosh stuff; S-100 computers and 8-inch floppy drives; SGI, Sun and DEC equipment; some "odds and ends" computer stuff; electronic and other test equipment; and personal information.

[tek 4006-1]

Tektronix 4006-1 graphics display terminal. This is their smaller model, green screen about 10 inches diagonal. Got it April 2001, at that time it would power up but was not functional. These were used in the 1970's for graphics, X-Y or vector drawing not raster scan.

LSI ADM-3A terminals

LSI brand ADM-3A terminals, the little blue Lear/Seigler terminals so popular and cheap in the early 1970's! These often have lower case text, display 80 X 24 characters, and have basic cursor control and scrolling. Here's a 2008-date WEb page about the ADM-3a.

I sold a number of these in the 1990's and 2000's. But by 2020 or so, I have a few left that need more work, some parts and cases available. Some have graphics upgrades. I've moved my ADM-3A descriptions and offers (if any) to a separate ADM-3A Web page. Check there for more info about repairs and features and things.

Links to useful sites

This list is far from comprehensive. A Google search will find many good Web sites regarding the items listed on this page.

The Linux MIPS Web site has info on running Linux on SGI systems. Go there for details. It may be a little dated. There is a mailing list there. A voice says "plugh".

DBIT company supports PDP-11 emulation and also running PDP-11 cards from Intel/Pentium based computers. Check there for details.
