The history behind the machine is that it originally was used by AGA in Täby and the given away to the Stacken computer club at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. Around 1996 Stacken got expelled from the space they had and had to get rid of most of their big computers. A lot of old computers were dumped in containers all over the campus area.
But the donator rescued this PDP-12 (and the PDP-9). To be able to ship it, it was slightly dismantled. The power supply was removed to make it less heavy and the control panel was taken of to not damage it. But all parts are preserved so it should be able to make it
We brought the one and a half PDP-12 to our museum where it is now awaiting restoration, starting with the power supply, replacing the PCB filled AC capacitor in the ferro resonant circuit of the power supply and then reforming all electrolytic capacitors.
Below is the fantastic control panel of the PDP-12. It was removed prior to shipment back in 1996 and has never been reinstalled since then.
The spare logic from the "half" PDP-12. A very good source for spare parts when trying to revive this fantastics machine.
This machine has serial number 103.
