I have two 1U tables that came with my pdp11/34. They are the pull out
type and do not fold down. I don't know whether they are DEC OEM or
third party, though and either is possible as the rack that it came in
was not DEC OEM either.

I'm not able to look at them right now, as they're in my workshop,
while I'm at home but I'll try to remember to examine them when I'm
out there next week to see if I can find any part numbers or other
