The usual where would you put it, how much money would you have to shell out
to buy it and ship it, and once here what exactly would you do with it?
There are many old machines that are worth preserving but are better off in
a museum then in somebody's cluttered basement left to rot. I can see
snagging that unit just to learn how it worked and refurbishing it, but
eventually a museum should probably get it unless somebody really has a use
for it. How rare are they anyway?
