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 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.

*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 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, $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!

New Foot on 465B with Cord
CLICK for bigger Pic


USA
The Helimec 339 Rear Foot is a replacement for the Tek 384-0339-00 foot and 212-0020-00 screw. One kit (Foot, screw, anti-skid bumper) replaces one Tek foot and screw directly. The anti-skid rubber insert is not mandatory, but provides a replaceable wear surface, and significantly increases the instruments stability when operated vertically. These are normally ordered and replaced as a set of 4. Due to a slight height difference, single replacements would make the scope sit unevenly, and are NOT recommended. An END VIEW, old on the left, new on the right and below.

PHILIPS/FLUKE SCOPES
Philips


CLICK HERE to order a Philips/Fluke Scope!

All of these scopes are USED, Overhauled and calibrated, and may have minor cosmetic scuffs and marks.

This series of late production scopes from Philips/Fluke are all based on the same core technology and control layout. Analog scopes have a secondary LCD display to show all control settings, and level/speed are selected with slew switches. The Auto-set switch gives one touch set up of all functions from triggering to level and sweep, an incredible time saver for many people. All scopes in this family include full TV triggering, as well as all regular internal/external modes, and scopes can have 1 or 2 full timebases to permit delayed, mixed and alternate timebase operation, a real help with waveforms that have both fast and slow characteristics.

The famous COMBISCOPES have full function analog AND digital operation, giving the best possible presentation for each application, and still featuring Auto-Set.

Philips scopes use a different 10x probe detection sceme than Tek scopes, and only the original Philips probes are correctly detected for the on screen and LCD displays. Any probe that can be compensated correctly will work, but display data will be as if the scope had 1X probes connected. We have a small quantity of the original Philips/Fluke probes sets available with a scope purchase ONLY, see data below.
Add genuine Philips 100Mhz 10X indicating probe kits (NEW!) to any Philips scope for $90 each. Available with scope purchase only.

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!.

We get constant requests for these for older HP gear, so we searched all over the planet, and found some black brand new cords from ALPHA. These have been a nightmare to order for us, due to discontinued production, big minimums, etc. We found one more batch hiding in a distributor's stock, and took them all. This is all we have located out there, so don't expect any further parts after this, as both Belden and Volex have stopped making these.

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.

130/140V Varistor (MOV) AC Line Surge Suppressors

Varistor Symbol
These handy little devices can be installed in any Test Gear, Stereo, TV etc. after the power switch and fuse on the AC line, and then give excellent protection against line surges, transients and lightning strikes. Varistors (MOVs) dramatically drop in resistance as their break-over voltage is exceeded, and act at high power clippers for incoming signals greater than their steady state rating.

We have 3 types, physically smaller blue (7 and 14mm) Siemens S14K140 which clamps above 140Vrms/4500A PK and EPCOS (formerly Siemens) S07K130, which clamps above 130Vrms/1200A PK, and a larger red (20mm) Harris 130L20 (same as V130LA20) that clamps above 130Vrms/6500A PK. The larger disc sizes can dissipate more excess energy. These are what is inside your "protected" power bars, and you can easily add this protection to your equipment (especially to portable items) as well, and prevent all kinds of damage down the road.

Sanyo Denki FINE ACE 20 plus alarm assembly
40mm square DC Brushless fan, 12VDC, 0.11A, 20mm inch thick, with Tach output, flying red/black/yellow leads soldered into the PCB. Medium 0.225 cubic meters/min airflow (approx. 8CFM), 5-blade design, 32dBa noise level. UL/CSA/TUV Listed fan. Assembled into a fan/PSU alert module from Bird Products Corp., Assembly 50660, Rev. G. This can be run from 24 to 11VDC (or even less, but fan speed suffers). The fan is fixed at 12V or less (via the regulator), and has an integral fault alarm if it becomes stalled, which sounds a loud acoustic transducer.

A very handy assembly, this has input power leads with TYCO FASTON double connectors that allows a second connection to each lead. Very well made, and easily disassembled if the alarm is used separately from this fan, as it should work with almost any 12V fan that has a tach output. This assembly would be perfect to ventilate and cool a constantly charging 12V battery pack in a UPS or similar system. Each one is indivudually bagged and sealed in an anti-static bag for protection.
