NEWLY ARRIVED STUFF !
go right to the catalog! Skip the INTRO, Go RIGHT to the CATALOG!

* NAVIGATION: To make your life easier, and help you find exactly what you want, we have broken the on-line equipment catalogs into smaller sections. Just CLICK on the item you are looking for at the left, to see the matching catalog. Large graphical catalogs are a bit SLOW, so please give them a bit of time to load. The top header of each catalog is largely the same, so don't think you are stuck in one place!

You can order anything here just by picking up the phone, and calling (250) 769-1834 during normal office hours, 8:30AM to 4:30PM PST. OR, Email your order to Susan CLICKHERE.

Shipping*SHIPPING: Preferred and Alternate Methods, CLICK for FULL DETAILS ON OUR FAQ Page. Rates are now changing rapidly, often with little notice to us, so all the data has been transferred to the FAQ page for speedy updating.

* E-Mail Susan if you want a quote for shipping to other destinations, or for something heavy. Sorry, we can't safely send most individual small parts in a regular letter envelope, they get destroyed by the automated handling equipment. Sometimes we can ship very rugged parts in a small padded envelope by letter post. Ask Susan.

*There is a packing charge for large or heavy equipment, see the FAQ for details.

*If we have your valid data on file, you can just click on the ORDER email link to place an order and indicate your approval to bill, and we will do the rest. We keep your active information for ONE YEAR for your convenience.

*If this is the first time you have dealt with us, you can phone +1 (250) 769-1834 to supply the billing info, or send it by the email link, as you prefer. We accept VISA/MC, international money order, Paypal (to Susan@Okanagan.net), and bank wire transfer. Please note that there are transaction fees with Paypal and wire transfer payments, the wire transfer fee is frankly horrifying, $50.

We accept VISA/MC or international money order

* CONDITION: To answer your questions, YES, we completely check and inspect all used equipment, and do not offer any we feel is substandard. That gear is normally scrapped, broken down for parts, or may get offered as-is in the HOT DEALS section, with the unit's condition clearly identified. If there are any marks or detracting features, we clearly state them in the listing. Before shipment, we burn in the equipment for 24 hrs. again and re-check to be sure it is good prior to shipment.

* The CATALOG will appear below shortly!
Don't forget these illustrated sections take a few seconds to load, but they are worth the wait!

2732 Custom motor
*E-Mail US!CLICK TO ORDER
Mounting end view
Powerful DC gearmotor custom made for Diebold by Igarashi Motor Sales USA, based on the N2732 27mm motor core and a 33mm diameter gearhead (33GN2732 series). Amazingly powerful for such a small motor, the gear ratio provides very high torque. Exact data is not known, but measurements show it seems to a ~9VDC motor at 0.13A (no load, ~100RPM) and runs down to 5VDC (at 0.08A (no load, ~50RPM), and up to 12VDC at 0.28A (no load) with no difficulty. Fully loaded mechanically, the current is roughly double. The drive shaft is a flatted 5mm steel shaft. See full dimensions HERE. They are excellent for all kinds of electromechanical devices, with enough rest friction to allow the motor to act as a brake on the drive shaft. Tapped holes (3 x 3mm) on the gearhead face ends of the motor for attachment. Fully reversible, with all leads floating, it has a 2mm mating connector, and the Tyco pc mounting 2mm connector is INCLUDED. Like all brush DC motors, some L/C filtering is useful to prevent interference with other parts of the circuit. New and unused, ready for your application! LOC: FB-TR

STK4164MK2 Info
SANYO
STK4164MK2 Stereo Amp
STK4164MK2
STK4174MK2
We have several module types, and useful parts to go with them! The STK4164M2 is good for Stereo 35W systems (2 x 35W amps), the STK4174MK2 for 40W systems. These use split supplies, and have no output cap, very nice designs, and easy to work with and heatsink. Great to boost that iPod to room level, or as guitar and vocal amps or for creating Dolby 5.1 or 7.1 systems. These support a speaker muting relay to eliminate turn-on pops and crackles. Work with 8 or 4 ohm loads, and can be run at less power with a lower supply voltage. We have data and applications info available right here, wahoo!.

SALE
We just don't have room any more to store these bulky tubes, so enjoy the stock while we still have it. Everything has been marked WAY down below our cost just to make room, and a few new items added. most of our Tek CRTs are already gone, this is the last big batch of test equipment specific CRTs to go. Don't miss your chance, when they are gone, that's it, we will never stock them again, just too space intensive and slow moving.

High Quality Audio Tubes
NewNew GE, Sylvania, RCA, CGE and Rogers
We just got in a large lot of mil and industrial tubes for classic tube audio fans. It will be a week or so before we have them all photographed, checked and posted, but here's a quick overview:

6V6GTY, 6L6WGB, 5881, 12AU7, 5814A, 6202/6X4WA, JAN 6SN7WGTB, JAN 5814A, JAN 6189W, 5963 and 12AX7.

These are mainly mil white boxed, all unused stock, excellent condition. If you need to check stock on a specific type, just email me below! Ideal for high end audio, these have extra mica supports, ruggedized frames, and much lower noise and microphonics than regular tubes. We have trouble getting NEW tubes from this era, so here's a great chance to grab a few spares for that favorite audio gear.

Marconi Instruments 893C AF Power Meter
Very similar to the popular General Radio 1840A Power Meter, this fully passive (no external power required other than the signal) power meter provides both correct load impedance and level display from 300uW to 30W, and 2.5 ohms to 20K ohms wth both voltage and dB scales provided. A very nice instrument for amplifier, sound system and radio testing, where a known load and level measurement is needed. A fully floating design, it can be optionally grounded, and includes a center tap for expanded capability. 20W continuous maximum power rating. Normal connection is made to the two red binding posts.

CLICK for bigger PIC!
Toshiba Simple Interface to all kinds of robotic motor functions!
1.5A / 24VDC Bipoolar Motor Driver This chip provides direct DC motor control with 4 operating modes (2 logic line control) FORWARD, REVERSE, STOP and BRAKE. TTL level logic control, easily interfaced to switches, logic or microcontrollers, and 2 floating motor pins with suppression diodes, thermal, over-voltage and over-current protection. H-bridge design provides motor reversal with only a single power supply (typ. 6-16VDC) and motor braking function. Speed control can be achieved by combining a PWM signal with forward/reverse logic commands. A great way to control all kinds of small DC motors, works great with the motor above. DOWNLOAD the full PDF Data Sheet HERE. We also have a high quality matching heatsink with PC mounting tabs that can be used with the TA8050P, see PIC HERE, requires one hole to be drilled for IC mounting, $2 each.
