A computer technology enthusiast collected various devices and supply materials from the beginning of digital computing (1955 - 1975). I decided to help the now retired grain farmer to turn his collection into an exhibition and arrange for it to be shown in different locations around Switzerland and Europe.
I am looking for collaborators who wish to assist me in restoring or documenting this old technology. I am currently assembling an ever growing list of parts and devices and will post images, documentations here as they become available.
My first restoration attempt will be on a FridenEC132 (1965), where my biggest challenge will be learn how to discharge the 3000V charge on the CRT display capacitor. (First Friden model to have a CRT display at all!)
I will post the different devices or components as different projects,- any collaboration is most welcome ! ;-)
