Yes, those R8000 boards should definitely be saved! Scrapping them
would be a crime. IMHO scrapping a machine like that is a crime too,
but if it really must go... I'd ask for the front doors but shipping
internationally would be ... prohibitive. If someone doesn't want the
whole thing though, I could really go for one of those R8k boards too,
and the LCD / key panel for the system controller.
Let me know what's feasable...
