For vacuum and air variables, rotary inductors, "big and little iron" - 
everything you need to put some "fire in the wire," then what are you 
waiting for - come visit the Collins Radio Center, near Johnstown, and 
rummage through our vast inventory of quality parts.

The "Surplus Sales" of the East but without unloading your pocketbook.

NO, we don't have a catalog.

Thank you

Dave, W3ST
