I found a strange auction site. They've got cool equipment and for seemingly fine prices. do you know anything about them?
I have my eye set on this one:
There are pointy haired bald people.
Time flies when you have a bad prescaler selected.
If you buy it let us know how it works.
About 8 months ago I got some wire from them (800 pounds worth). There are only 3 things you should be aware of.
1. They add a 10 percent charge (and tax of course) so it is a little more expensive then you think it will be.
2. You have to pick it up in person - there's no shipping.
3. They dont have any idea of the condition of the items. It might be crushed into a pancake (they move everything with pallets and fork lifts) or missing parts or non-functioning. So its somewhat of a gamble.
Other then that, its a pretty cheap place to get stuff. I live near the one in norfolk so thats the only one I'm commenting on.
The shipping companies will pick it up for you and ship it. I was going to buy a tektronix scope and the ups store said they would pick it up and ship it to Seattle for 100 bucks. Seemed pretty reasonable to me. Also they have a condition code that describes what kind of shape the items are in. Here is the link for a pdf file describing the condition codes.
hmm... i don't supose they would ship it to slovakia for a reasonable price?
