A thing of beauty Digital R81

We needed to make space for a couple of new racks and decided to get rid of our 'workbench'. The workbench consisted of an old Digital VAX system which was mostly stripped of it's innards to leave a few sturdy steel frames. Here are some nostalgic pics of the last remaining unit being gutted. Note the gorgeous circuit boards so easily accessible. And yes, that last one is a 500MB harddrive (so I'm told). The motor seems more suited to a washing machine. They don't make 'em like they used to.
