Very nice. We use to have a few parts stores in my town and radioshacks but hardware jobs are dying off like these thus their demise. I guess other countries will take up the cause.

I certainly would be like a kid in a candy store in that shop.  Very droolworthy.  But shame on you, Martin, for labelling BNC 50Ω Terminators as connectors (Page 3).  I wonder if they sell many of those any more?

If you ever go to Goldcrest, be sure to eat at Highland Park Diner, right across the street.

On a recent visit to Boston I was glad to see that You Do It Electronics in Needham on the historic Route 128 is still alive and kicking.  You should go visit!  These places need our support.
