So I recently happened to be doing some stuff in the basement, and I compared
the DEC part numbers on the RA81 slides and some RL02 slides I have, and
... they are indeed the same part number!

I have yet to try this and see if the RL0x's will in fact slide out - does
anyone happen to know if RL0x's can be slid out?

Definitely a possibility, given that they are in fact the same slides.
