When I was in college, the company I was co-op at was scrappy some IBM
mainframe gear. Myself and another co-op talked them into letting us take a
3333 disk drive. We loaded in the back of a half ton pickup truck with a fork
lift and promptly settled it onto the bumpstops. We then drove 50+ miles to
the shop. It took a few days to take that thing apart! The cast aluminum disk
housing was a marvel in itself. The shop owner saw the square tube chassis and
claimed it as payment for us using his space. What a beast that thing was!
