This was my "Black Friday" shopping this year:

Nice! Probably not much to go wrong with the enclosure.

Not sure... According to nextime a while ago, there were tons of them.

I've only ever seen the one I got (serial number 1004) and the one that kenjay sold on eBay many years ago (serial number 1064).

I've never seen them referred to in any official catalog or documentation so I don't think they were ever publicly sold. I had no idea they existed until kenjay's auction a few years ago. His was brand new, IIRC. Mine, sadly, doesn't have the key.

Once I get a chance to open it up I'll see if there are any date stamps anywhere. I'm really curious as to when they were made.

Cool never seen or heard of one of these before, I reckon a decent locksmith will sort the key out no sweat.

I'd love to see if there's any "smarts" on the back of the drive bay.
While it is all NeXT branded it's also clearly all OEM stuff and I recall until a few years ago I had a stack of removable bays that look identical, but they had a weird bit of logic on them for stuff like automatic ID negotiation.

Also, I noticed that the caddy is currently locked in. Wink
