Apologies to those of you who are getting this twice because you're on the
vcf-midatlantic list but here's another blurb about VCF East. This one has
some nice shots of Mike Loewen's HP demo! Also check out the "see through"
Macintosh - we need a "see through" H8 (or H89??) at a future event!

 we need a "see through" H8 (or H89??) at a future event!

We need just to find the factory in the US that can do this job. They only reference the following:

"The high quality acrylic plastic was manufactured in sheets in the United States and shipped to our partner factory in Indiana. Once arrived at the factory it was cut using CNC machines and hand crafted by plastic artisans using a custom fixture. "

I've got a plexiglass top, but none of the other pieces are plexiglass.

No, this was part of a collection I got from a company that made products for Heathkit systems. This wasn't one of their products, but I think they had it made to show off their products at trade shows.

I remember seeing one like that at HUGCON in '83 or '84.  BTW - if you have the original cover and would like to sell it, I'd be interested in buying it.

For more info, the plexiglass was stored in a box, and I just put it on a system I had on my bench to take the photo.

On that system, it has a CDR board and a MMS board, along with a 10M hard drive. Unfortunately, it doesn't power on, it's in my queue to investigate and try to get it working.
