Since Suzie and I are both 67, it's time to thin out out test gear, parts and 
HP/Fluke/Tek/GR collection. At this year's spring Stuff Day (suggestions for a 
best weekend appreciated, we just need good weather), we will have a huge pile 
of as-is Tek and HP scopes and general test gear, plug-ins and parts, plus a big 
stack of good CRTs. As-is Scopes will go for $25 each, and include plug ins. 
Everything imaginable is here in terms of test gear. Where possible, we will add 
in the manual on CD if we have it.

We also have a massive printed manual library to dispose of which includes Tek, 
HP, Fluke, Boonton, Philips, OPMI/Wavetek, Triplett, Simpson and many others. 
They will go by the pound  If anybody is interested in our Tek or HP parts, we 
will take offers on all, or categories, like ICs, Pots, Transistors, Knobs, 
etc.  It's really best to do that in person so you can see what's there, it's a 
lot, but all neatly bagged and sorted and photos on the web site. We can also 
provide the turn-key Sphere website and inventory if desired. it gets about a 
million page views a year. Otherwise we will just wind it down as the material 
clears out.

We have a huge inventory of fans, 5V, 12V, 24V, 48V and 115VAC, literally 
thousands, all boxed, documented and most are on line to review.

We have lots of standards and calibrators, all kept in great shape, plus optical 
stereo microscopes, and many tons of parts. We have a huge inventory of general 
purpose semis, and a very extensive stock of PMTs, CRTs, Nixies and 
audio/industrial tubes. We also have about a dozen very good tube testers, 
including a Hickok cardmatic.

Anyway, it will take a while to move all this, so anybody interested should plan 
for stuff day, or drop by for a visit. No, I am not going to send out lists of 
every damn thing, be reasonable. please, look at the web site, there's about 
that same amount again that is not posted there just due to lack of time.

Hope to see you here this spring,
all the best,
