IBM quotes this one (it's a 9672-RC4... 3way G3) to weigh between 
1300lbs and 2000lbs.  Granted, the 2000lbs is for a 2-frame config, and 
this is just one frame, but from the amount of force required to lift 
it with the 'lever' (aka 2x4) I was using, it was definately in that 
range, probably at least 1500lbs.

I'm appreciating living on the ground floor, with a concrete slab under 

BTW, If anyone knows things about S/390 HMCs and SEs, drop me a line.  
I'm having some trouble getting a valid 'login' for it.  Of course, 
I've got some other places to ask, but I'm not sure how far I'll get 

And I have a pic or two of my living room, I'll post them sometime 
tonight where the other pics are.
