At least once a year, Sphere holds a Stuff Day, where we get rid of parts, equipment, tools, metalwork, equipment and so forth. A lot is 100% FREE, the rest is very cheap so we can clear out more space. Each year, the items are different, depending on exactly what we have been doing, so it is always a new and interesting event, and this year includes stereo microscopes for SMD work.


YOU ARE INVITED
Saturday, October 7th, 9am to 4pm!


Everybody gets a free 5V/5A power supply, and a free slide rule if they can answer a skill testing math question (no calculators allowed!)

Shipping*Bring your own BOXES and BAGS, please! There is a lot of loose stuff, so bring containers to make your own life easier. We can provide Visa/MC for items from Sphere, and of course regular old dollars are always good.

*DO YOU HAVE ITEMS to SELL/SWAP/TRADE? - Just contact Walter to reserve a spot, which can be either a trunk/truck sale or a table (that you bring). Selling space is physically limited, so first come, first served. We can provide power to some locations, just let us know what you need in advance. Please note that those with trunk sales that are farther up the driveway cannot leave until those below have left first, so let us know what you prefer. Setting up? you can arrive at 7am to do that. We can also provide overnight camper parking for a few people who have to drive in on Friday. If it rains, all will be inside, we go ahead, rain or shine!

*What will we have? This year, free items include all kinds of electronic parts, metalwork, partial or repairs-needed test gear of all kinds, salvage boards, cables and connectors and computer hardware, entertainment gear, technical books and catalogs. Cheap stuff includes $2-5 panel meters, fully working test gear (Fluke, Tektronix, HP, Boonton, PMI/Wavetk, etc.), Reels of high performance LEDs, Time system units, Cathode Ray and Transmitting/Audio Tubes, high performance solar cells, prime test leads, stereo microscopes (ideal for SMD work), RF/Microwave assemblies and equipment and more. For students and experimenters, we also have solderless breadboards in 3 sizes, and complete breadboard stations with power supplies and generators! We need to get rid of about 500 pounds of FACTORY manuals, Tek, HP, Fluke, Boonton, and many more. Pile 'em up on the scale, and buy them by the POUND! You will be able to get everything from through-hole and SMD parts, DIY solar panels to scopes and DMMs.

I had a few requests to list what will be at stuff day on October 7th here at Sphere Research Corp. here's just some items collected so far:

We will have a limited number of 4Gb+ 210 semiconductor/tube/applications databook DVD's for attendees, others can download the files CLICK!HERE thanks to John Allen. Beautifully laid out and easy to get just what you want, or the whole thing.

We are always looking for hp power meter sensors and cables, power meter calibrators. Also Nixie Tubes, minitrons (3015F displays), numitrons (DR2000, DR2010 displays) electrostatic CRTs, and good quality tube sockets. Tek 311-1192-00 pots, Heahtkit desk microphones are also on our wish list!

How do you get here? We are in West Kelowna, (over the bridge if you are coming from Kelowna or Vernon on highway 97, before the bridge if from Penticton). The best route is to take Boucherie from highway 97 (there's an Esso station and pub there at that major corner), follow it up the hill and down again to Quails' Gate vineyard (that street is Sunnyside Rd.), turn left on Sunnyside, follow it around to the right, and just before it turns left, that's us, at 3394 Sunnyside Rd. We have a long driveway, and wide turn out to support lots of cars/trucks/tables for the sale and swap meet, others should park along Sunnyside rd. Get lost? call us at (250) 769-1834. For those wanting a trunk/truck spot, we will load vehicles from the top, and turn the cars to the left, so all items are on the left side with a clear walkway up and down.

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.
