I'm just speculating that it's the power supply. Most of the cabling
for the machine is under the floor. In that metal cabinet there's a few
circuit breakers, so maybe the thing is even just a transformer. I
don't know. The machine is rather small, each of the two chassis are
about the size of a 4/x70. The one on the right is labeled
"expansion". I pulled out the hard drive in that external chassis. it
is a standard SCSI hard drive (i think it was a seagate). I don't know
the model number of the terminals.

I thought about taking it for that reason too, but I already have enough
machines that i'm not using.

kind of, but quite a bit smaller. They're about chair-height.
