This is some really cool stuff!

I am also chatting with Dave Brown (exTek, and VintageTek museum volunteer to dig up their resources.

Anything that comes up from all this begging will of course be posted to bitsavers.

Thanks guys!

Very cool stuff.   Let's see some pictures posted of the Test Fixture front panel.  I had heard of the existence of these, which essentially was a lights and switches front panel that allowed exam & deposit of memory, as well as single-stepping of the 6800 in the 4051.    One thing I often wondered...would this  work on a 4052?

Would also love to see pix of the "GAS 6800".   Could well be a prototype....  Seeing it, I may be able to confirm if it is.

Any of the ROMpacks that you have that haven't already had their firmware dumped out, should be captured if at all possible and place up on BitSavers....hint, hint.
