This is in the original 330 case, right ?  Has 3 VME slots and the
boards drop down in vertically under a cover on the top.... (versus
the old VME chassis which had the cards slide in from the rear),
correct ?

I'm "local" to Cambridge (Sharon, MA).  I don't have a good vehicle
for hauling, but a friend of mine has a pickup truck.

I really shouldn't be taking on more equipment, but this stuff is
old and hard to find these days.  I'm really interested in ALL of
it... but as I have so much now I'm resisting unless no other good
homes appear for the stuff....  just wish I had more time and space
(I have a pretty good amount of space... time is what seems to be
most lacking (despite being unemployed currently :-) ).

Since there isn't anything I really need... let me know if there are
no takers, and I'll come up with my friend and his truck and rescue
this stuff.. then whatever I don't end up adding to my collection I'll
attempt to find new owners for.... its much better than the trash bin !
