I have always wanted to own a MINIVAC 601 computer but they sell for so much on eBay that I had to abandon the idea. So, I downloaded all the pdf's of the manuals and studied them for a few hours. I couldn't find anything showing the wiring diagram of the computer so I decided to " wing it " Four months later I had a working machine built of wood, relays, slide switches, and a motorized dial.😬. You can watch it work on my YouTube channel gort59. The computer has been able to run all the programs I have tried so far and I will publish more of the experiments from the PDF's as I progress in the near future.

Thanks for your time!
