    I've been gathering part for a 3b2-1000, I'm just missing
mostly the case...

    I worked with some phone guys and got some spare parts
when they got rid of their last system. (they had to send
the case back for inventory control but they told them to
toss the boards to save on shipping).

    So if anyone knows where I can find a case.....
