Very good to see that you have some DEUCE parts,
including some of the removeable chassis from the mainframe.
There’s a part of the front panel, where the two CRTs were.
The magnetic drum from UTECOM (a DEUCE) has been preserved in a
museum in the U.S.A. I might be able to find a photograph of it for you.
I remember the DEUCE
I had a posting to the National Engineering Laboratory in 1961 and wrote a few programs.
There was a useful language “Alphacode” which made life a wee bit easier. All very primitive by today’s methods.
I moved on to work on the ICT 1300 and wrote some “impossible” programs, modified Initial Orders to boot from paper tape or mag tape. Happy days (and long night debugging!)
