You could sell it for good money to some small Mac-using shop.  :)

Probably, they're worth good money ($5k new, $1k refurb).  I show the
TSU600 as a 24-slot T1/FT1 multiplexer.  Just the thing to connect a
channelized T1 to.

If nothing else, if they're going free I might have a use for one at
some point.  (If they're not, I can't afford one on spec.)
