This takes me back.

A unit record device such as this should be offered to a museum. Suggest checking with:-

who should be able to advise.

Please make an effort to find it a good home, as it represents a stage in computing history. Here in the UK, it would go to the the Science Museum in Kensington.

Advise how you get on.

Good Luck. Thanks - Mike

Hi Mike:

Thanks for the advice on where the old 083 might find a home. When I started working for IBM in 1967, I sold the punch cards used in this thing.

Best regards,
Paul

Hi Paul - Here in the UK I worked as an engineer for IBM in the workshops at Ruislip. The card plant was nearby in South Harrow.

System 360 was the computer of that time, however I worked on Tabulators. Remember the 444 and 421?

I recall my colleagues struggling to get the adjustment just right on the spring steel strips that fed the cards into each of the hoppers.

I may still have a manual for the plugin board somewhere around.

Regards - Mike.

I still have manuals etc for the 1401/1440 ... did a lot of coding in those days. Ah, the good ol' days.   Spent many hours in front of the 081 sorter and other EAM equipment
