Wel I am of course, but then you knew that !

Currently I have -:

- a P857

- a P856 missing the box, PS & backplane ( simple enough to reproduce )

- a measuring system based on the P854 CPU ( the same I brought you )

- a P851, missing the backplane, frontpanel,  a serial card and the PSU.

- 2 single-chip P800 CPU's

I have documentation on the P852, P956, P833 digital cassette

On software side not much : a single cassette with Fortran & manuals.

Yes, we should get Al interested in these ! But AFAIK they never made in to the US.
