Anyone knows if there is a interesting electronics store in London, UK. I´m going there next week.
I'm interested in used test and measuring equipment, and things like that.
Anyone who has any good ideas post them here.

Hi,

Check out "Totenham Court Road" and don't forget to haggle the price down.

Tottenham Court Road is mainly consumer electronics - not much good for used T&M gear. In fact I don't know anywhere in London that is. Ralfe Electronics used to be good, but they've moved out of london and gone upmarket.

There used to be a couple of big component shops on Edgware Road, but I'm not sure they are still there. There's a nice vintage hi-fi shop nearby on Bell Street if you're interested in that kind of thing. Very expensive though.

They don't do used stuff, but Maplins have several stores in London - there's a link off their main webpage to "Retail Stores".

I would have bookmarked it directly, but their website uses frames. Grrr.

Hi Ted,

If you are prepared to spend a couple of hours on Totenham Court Road (in the smaller shops at the far end) and ask for the parts required then in my experience you can get nearly anything.
