Where do you live, and how do you heat yoru house?  If you are an elf in 
Santa's workshop and heat with electrisity, then it is worth it.  For the 
rest of us, if you can't get a couple relatives to help you move it, then 
it probably isn't worth it.

I understand these need either 220v power or 3-phase.  Check out the 
power requirements if you plan to use it.

I think the place I work for still has one sitting around.  (probably 
complete with boot tapes)  free to a non-profit org that wants to get it 
in that case.  It's in Broklyn Park (Minneapolis), and you probably get 
to pick it up.  (I can't garentiee that it is still there, but if you 
know a non-profit that wants to get it, ask.  If you arne't a non-profit 
org, the janitiers can probably "happen to open the door and let you take 
it, but you have to figgure out how to talk them into that)
