The thing that made me ask was that the grey thing was possibly a 1/4 or 
larger motor, and maybe it was some oddly skinned disk drive.  Now I see it.

My cousin built one of those and had the best workshop TV in full color 
till his wife made him put it in a box in the living room. Great fun 
with the controls that pulled out after that, but not near as fun as a 
25" or so color tv on your bench.

thanks for the info.

I will try to get there tomorrow, may call you, Brendan and let you 
distribute the Bytes.  I'm looking for a particular ad in the 70s thru 
80's magazines and if I find it that would be all I want to keep.
