Strange DEC stuff.

An ex-DEC engineer offloaded some strange stuff that was going to the skip.
I just thought I could have a look. But what is it?

There is two backplanes marked KA14 and BE14. I thought it was the PDP-14,
but I am not sure really.

I came together with a similar sized PSU.

Then there was a strange DEC workshop built paper tape reader. The reader
mechanics looks similar to PC04 and PC05 but is smaller. The wheel is
smaller and the stepper motor is smaller as well. Are these parts from some
other DEC reader they cobbled together at DEC for inhouse duty.

Any clues?
