Description

Object is a hand-built computer comprising two card cages containing twelve circuit cards. One card cage has a front panel bearing the label "Wave Mate Jupiter II 6800 Computer System". This cage contains a power supply and manufacturer's label on the back. The second card cage appears incomplete. The circuit cards are all hand-wire-wrapped (not soldered). The projecting wire-wrap terminals are quite fragile. In addition to the card cages and complete circuit cards there are three bare cards and three metal bars that relate to the assembly of the card cage. This object is the second cage.
