Speaking of...

I've got a few of those as well (even the grey rotary data phone to go with
them), although I suspect they're < 9600 bd; also some line drivers and 
"Steamer" mux/demux's; just the thing for you guys with the separate 
buildings - lets you run a single 4-wire cable between your terminal(s) and 
the hardware collection in the "museum" out back.

Also a couple of Centronics-type parallel printer extenders (up to
50' or so of phone cable between computer & printer ports) so you
can keep the printer in your living room.

Any interest, email off-list.
