We have several defunct Evans & Sutherland graphics workstations about
(PS300's, I think).  Each has a set of 8 dials on it that look quite a bit
like an older version of the dial boxes on our SGIs.  We have one SGI that
is currently sans dials and it would be great if we could scavenge one of
these old dial sets for it, rather than having to shell out $2000 for a
new set (with the buttons, which we basically don't use). 

So....

Anybody know if the old E&S dials can be used on an SGI?
Obviously the connector is different, but are the electronics compatible?

Thanks,
