Thanks to all who came out and supported us last Saturday.We sold a TON of the stuff sitting outside in the flea market. I'd say that 80% of it is STILL there. In one way or another we have to get rid of it and we really do not want to throw it away. So that said this Saturday will be our fire sale to hopefully get rid of more of it. There are MANY consoles, records, tubes, test gear, recievers, a few table sets, record players, books, speakers, obscure and common parts, parts bins full of parts, so on and so on. All will be sold for dirt-cheap. I have been told that for CHRS members they should come and feel free to just fill up their cars or trucks. If you need AA5 tubes, want to rescue a console or 2... or 5... come do so.

Come by anytime between 9-3 this Saturday...

Went to CHRS today. Came home with a large box of radio tubes. Plan to go back next Saturday and pick up more. Didn't bother with TV, Compactrons or most miniature tubes. Other than that most of what is available are octal, loctal and some large pin types.

Here is my idea. Some of you live in the country or small city without radio parts. I plan to ship boxes of tubes to some radio collectors. There are far more than tubes available but some items are heavy or not worth shipping. Resistors drift and capacitors become leaky. Radios and test equipment are heavy or too large to mail.

Our evil plan failed. Some stuff went out but then a truck pulled up and
Unloaded 4 consoles, 4 boxes of tubes, 6 radios, and other stuff. The same
Deal will happen next Saturday. Come by and get more and tell your hoarder friends too

Same drill tomorrow. Come load up and take away whatever. I will likely put a bunch of consoles on the curb with "free" written on them too. Starts at 9:00...

Hi Norm;

Thanks so very much for the tubes you sent me! Your thoughtfulness is appreciated, and they will be put to good use.

Thia is your LAST Saturday to collect whatever items are left and there is a LOT left too. All of this is free. Otherwise sadly it will all be recycled the following week.

Rats! I'm going to be in the Bay area for business starting on the 10th. I was hoping I might catch some of the goodies.

Stop by anyway. No way can all that stuff be dumped by then. All kinds of stuff on tables, shelves, floor, everywhere. Suggest anyone wanting parts, test equipment stop by. Some items are in cases and get overlooked. Look through everything if you have time.

Free radios, parts and equipment still available at 2152 Central in Alameda on Saturday, Sept 9. Come by and get all you can haul. Last week we found a new Ampex tape recorder in a case that was never opened. There is a wire recorder and nice scopes available. Plenty of tubes and parts.

As bobwilson1977 says FREE, Bring a truck.

Oh, my. My daughter and son-in-law are on a mini-vacation in California this weekend... If only they hadn't flown, imagine what they could carry back home for me!
