I moved away from Phoenix a couple of years ago but I used to see stuff
like that at Apache Surplus. It's right off the freeway (I-10 I think by
then - I get confused) near either 7th St. or 3rd St. I think. Check the
phone directory. Years ago, Allied Metals was good but I think it is
long gone. The guy that owned it retired. There was a guy that went in
and out of business in Phoenix with that kind of thing but he tended to
have hot stuff so he wasn't safe. I forget what he called his place. If
you find anything better, please let me know so I can have my brother
check it out. The outfit here is run by highway robbers. I can get
better prices from Digi-key.
