I might not take the whole machines, but I could use parts. I am missing a few key caps/switches and a power switch on mine (the three of them which come... from you!). And extra IO boards are always welcome. Before you scrap everything, let me know if I can come on Sunday.

Spring cleaning time!
I have three vintage HP 9836 computers, two monochrome monitors, one color
monitor and three printers.
I'm sure they are going to need work to get running. No testing has been
done. Could probably get two out
of the three working. Somewhere I have a few various I/O cards also that
will be included.
The video boards (in the main unit, under the left disk drive) are different
between mono and colour versions of the 9836. You can't use a colour
monitor on a monochrome machine or vice versa. So if somebody
ends up taking 1 or 2 machines, make sure you get the right monitors.
An easy way to tell them apart without dismantling is that the colour
machine has a thumbwheel (contrast control) on the bottom.. Left
side, about level with the front of the drives. The mono machine
doesn't. The mono motor has a knob on the back, the colour
monitor has an IEC mains connector.
I looked at the three machines. Two are monochrome and the third has a
sticker saying it's been upgraded to
an 9836C so that's the one for the color monitor.
Unfortunately, it looks like no one is interested in them so they might
get scrapped. Oh well... I just don't have
room to keep everything.
