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.

No clue.

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