I am looking to locate and purchase (an almost certainly, necessarily
used) "Micro Mate 520 STation." This was an integrates system stand
for the Atari 520ST computer that I purchased from the back of an
Atari ST magazine ("STart", perhaps) late 1986 / early 1987. The unit
was able to house two 3.5" floppy drives and their related power
supplies, contained a power strip, had a space underneath for the
Atari 520ST to slide under, and was designed to serve as a monitor
stand. I have drawn a rough sketch of the stand here:
The only reference I have found to this stand on-line I quote below,
which includes the former address of the manufacturer:

"If your ST feels a little cluttered, with all those cables and power
supplies kicking around the back of the desk, you might want to
organize things with the Micro Mate 520 Station ($95). This shielded,
custom-designed cabinet stores all power supplies and cables in a
tidy, streamlined chassis that doubles as monitor stand, and contains
space underneath to slide your ST and mouse neatly out of sight.
Micro Mate, Inc., Pioneer Building, 600 First Avenue, Seattle, WA
98104, (206) 643-9697. FINAL."

What I am looking for as an "answer" is either 1) someone who knows
where I can purchase one of these units (the ideal answer) or 2) to
simply be put in contact with someone who is verified as currently
owning one, whether or not they are willing to sell. Given that they
may not be willing to sell, I would at least like a digital photograph
of the unit as part of a successful "answer" in scenario 2.
I think I am paying well for this answer, but doubt that anyone will
have much luck in finding my answer...
