Cool electronics shop could take you to the moon.. The Scene
You know there's something special about a surplus store that has not just one, but three rockets and a UFO decorating its exterior. For more than 25 years, Skycraft has been the place to search for hard-to-find vintage (and new) electronics and electrical supplies. The warehouse-like building is filled from floor to ceiling with row after row of cool gadgets, parts and oddball items. In fact, there's enough motors, cables and computer gear laying around here to build your very own spacecraft (or at least something that resembles one).
If it runs on electricity or resides inside equipment that does, rest assured it can probably be found here. A quick inventory check of what's available includes video equipment and switchers, audio speakers and amplifiers, keypads, oscilloscopes, ball bearings, telephone equipment, sub-woofers, fans and equipment cases. We're also talking vacuum tubes, diodes, capacitors, rectifiers and relays. Need cable? There's a whole room devoted to an entire rainbow of varieties, including fiber optic.
