The internet’s place to go for surplus test equipment, slide rules, and assorted oddities!

Did we say July? We meant August.

July 19, 2024

We will be back and answering e-mails regularly towards the middle of August. Sometimes health problems are more stubborn than they should be.

Send good wishes, and maybe spare penicillin?

Maybe just a bit longer…

We’re hoping to be back in the office by July 19th, and we very much appreciate your patience!

On a break, but back soon!

We hope all of our customers are enjoying the summer weather and doing well!

We’re going to be away from the office for a short while due to medical reasons, so we may be slow getting back to you.

The office should be open again by July 8th, and you shouldn’t have to wait too long for any orders after that.

Interesting and Unusual

Jim from Calgary has been visiting and I trust having a wonderful time going through everything that Sphere has to offer. He is giving me things he finds that he thinks will be of interest to our customers and in the next few days , we will be posting them. Keep an eye on all the new items on the site and enjoy the benefit of his vast and varied knowledge.  Thank you for your continued support.

As many of you know, Walter Shawlee, the inspiration and technical mind behind Sphere Research has died.

We are now liquidating all the components and test equipment from the company as well as some of the assets.

We have just started to list larger lots of parts and will continue to add to this regularly, to facilitate the liquidation process.

Please let us know if there is something specific you would like and we will check our stock for you.

The products are all priced. However we are open to reasonable offers.

Thank you for your continued support.
