  Vince Slyngstad and possibly others have been busily designing
replacement plastic parts for DEC machine, but nothing else yet.  Things
like PDP-8 and PDP-11 switch handles, etc.

  I have somewhat of a too-intimate knowledge of how the Sun VME
ejectors behave.  I'm quite certain neither an ABS nor a PLA printed
part will withstand that much pressure.
