Abstract

This tool allows efficient and safe handling of pre-wired pairs of MST memory boards. It is basically a pair of specially designed handles (see figure, two used) that when assembled will hold any pair of vertically mounted MST boards (in this case a pair of memory boards) in proper alignment so that they can be installed or removed from the machine to alter configurations in an efficient and safe manner. This tool is also used to hold the boards in position for wiring and off line testing.
