  • There is a place here in Salt Lake City named RA-ELCO (www.ra-elco.com) that is a tinkerer’s candy store. It’s not a huge yawning warehouse, but a cozy small building tucked away in an industrial section of Salt Lake. They have been in business since 1972 ( about the time I graduated from high school and really became interested in electronics ). They have row after row of odds and ends, some salvaged some new. They stock a reasonable number of ECG (generic replacement semiconductors and the like) parts. They even have a room devoted to tubes ( for those of us “seasoned” enough to remember what they were ). The counter is staffed by knowledgeable folks who are always willing to help noobs or to tell you what row a given part might be found on. RA-ELCO is a real gem.

No public wish lists :(
