The only thing about this DECmate I that is out of the ordinary is the
second set of floppies... the pedestal and "pine top" are bog
standard. My DECmate I happens to have the less common full desktop -
one removes the keyboard tray from the pedestal, and replaces it with
a tabletop bracket, then bolts on a 1m x 1.5m desktop that only has
one set of legs (i.e., it would fall over if not attached to the DM I
drive pedestal). One then puts the DECmate CPU on the desktop and
sits with the drives facing the front, on the right side.

Not me... it's too rich for my blood, especially when one considers
shipping (Montana is _way_ too far to drive).
This did not work for me... I extracted the auction number
(5180062401) and searched for it to find it.
