Vintage Technology: For Sale! (always being updated - last update May 2010)
Want to get hold of some hard-to-get bits and pieces - then this is the page! This section is under a major revamp with loads and loads of interesting and obscure stuff. Sometimes just for the love of it and sometimes to enable you to get rare components at reasonable prices (and hopefully with the data you need).
Please take note that is a non-profit making web site. I sell bits to fund the purchase of other bits in order to increase the free information on this site and also so you can get that old piece of history working again. Components are for my own use, but as they are so hard to get they are listed for desperate people! So check quantities available as I may have just used some. Thousands more to come.
Payment can be cheque (pounds sterling only please), postal order or paypal (either direct or through a "buy it now" ebay lot).
