All Kinds of Connectors
Red, single horizontal PC mounting RCA Jack

Forgive the many blanks in the listings, we are just getting this section set up! More items will be added as time permits!

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

These are the stock connectors we have on hand, both new and used. There is a wide variety of material, and stock changes constantly. We try and keep a deep stock of commonly used parts, and always have some strange and bizarre items of interest value.

There are many subtle grades of quality in connectors, and it is often not so easy to determine what makes one better than another. Gold plating is a major factor, with more gold being more expensive. Higher quality connectors have machined pins and sockets, less expensive designs use formed and folded contacts. There are also three distinct grades of connectors, mil-spec (very high quality materials and construction), industrial (high quality construction), and consumer grade parts optimized for price. The higher quality the part, the more cycles it can withstand, and the lower and more consistent the contact resistance. D-sub connectors started as a high quality industrial connector from Cannon, and evolved into both very high grade military connectors, and very low cost consumer connectors for computers. We have parts of all types, and they have corresponding price differences, even though they are all interchangeable and inter-mateable.

* 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 FAX to (250) 769-4106. OR, Email your order to Susan CLICKHERE.

Shipping*SHIPPING: Preferred and Alternate Methods as of June 4, 2013, CLICK for FULL DETAILS ON OUR FAQ Page. Rates are now changing rapidy, 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.

*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 or FAX +1 (250) 769-4106 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.

We accept VISA/MC or international money order

* CONDITION: These items are all new high quality industrial surplus parts, in excellent condition.

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