Problem Solver System S-100 box See details on my PSS restoration Web page. On Sunday, I got it from "pulled from the garage" condition to successfully running power without frying anything. No, it took several hours testing to avoid damage, it was not "pray and smoke-test".

Part of UNIVAC parts collection, Bill Dromgoole did some accounting of it. Made a rubber-hose fix of a capstan but it was too nonuniform to work at speed. Still, after he replaced/restored cards to the UNIVAC, he got it to read a tape to the Teletype.
