After replacing a lot of dead National Semiconductor TTL ICs this nice
little machine from 1972-1973 is running again. It works perfectly to do
calculations and also to create programs. I also managed to both store and

wasn't able to find any.

so a replacement would probably be needed to get it working 100%. One
segment in the display is dead.
Anyway: Here is the writeup of the restoration:
