We had a couple 4951s set up at all times, mostly for sync debugging
of our own products, but occasionally, we stuck them between two
machines running Kermit or Blast or some other async transfer program
to figure out why they weren't happy.  We had one RS-232 and one combo
RS-232/differential (2 connectors) pod.  I see a few cheap machines on
eBay, but they are missing the pod cover.  Good for parts, but without
finding/fabricating an external interface, not immediately useful.
The complete machines seem to still fetch a pretty penny.

Great series of machines.
