  • Broken Eee PC for spares, or just an Eee PC 4G (701) keyboard.
  • Electronics testgear, working or not
  • Old calculators, especially hewlett packard


Various stuff that I could bring to the space by arrangement, for temporary use (some of these are heavy and most would require a car trip so not trivial):

  • Testgear - signal generators, DVMs, counters, oscilloscopes, logic analysers, spectrum analysers, LCR measurement, PSUs, current probes etc. Ask if you're looking for something.
  • Mechanical - sheet folder, toggle press, die filer, power hacksaw, grinding vice, scrollsaws, MIG welder, forge/brazing hearth, bar cropper.



  • Pair of hifi speaker stands.



  • Lots of pneumatic gear - 3x 50mm bore 300mm stroke 10 bar cylinders, lots of smaller cylinders, solenoid 3-port valves, 2 carbon dioxide fire extinguishers, 10 bar regulator, 11 bar and 68 bar relief valves, 2l 16 bar buffer tank. None certified/tested, used at collector's risk!
  • 4x Hawker PC680 deep cycle sealed lead-acid batteries, 12V 7Ah if I recall correctly - about 8 years old but kept topped up regularly
  • 0.47 and 0.1 ohm resistors, 200W


  • Revolution counter, the small kind you find in tape recorders.
  • Clockwork motor

alexs (find me on IRC)

For sale or swap

  • IBM Thinkpad floppy drive. Taken from an IBM Thinkpad T20. FRU P/N 05K9206.
  • Western Digital MyBook Pro 500GB. This thing tends to give me I/O errors after it's been mounted for a few days, but it's about a 50/50 chance that's down to my PC's crappy USB handling than the drive. It's got a USB2.0 and Firewire interface, so if nothing else you could use it as a smart new drive enclosure.
  • Brand new Acer keyboard and mouse. Came with my Acer Aspire Revo, but I'm using it as a headless server. Both are white, and still in their packaging. The mouse is optical and has a scrollwheel; the keyboard has that flat-button style that Apple keyboards have these days. It's a little smaller than standard, but not as small as a laptop keyboard. Both are USB devices.
  • Electric guitar. This thing's an undeniable clunker. The action is pretty shit, the electronics could do with a soldering iron to make the connections less dodgy, and the paint job is nasty. It is a body someone rescued from a skip and bolted a new neck to. But! If you wanted a cheap way to try out the guitar, or smash one up without spending too much, or try being a luthier, or just leave it lying around the house to impress girls – this is the guitar for you.


  • 3.5" internal floppy drive.
  • VGA cable.
  • 2x kettle leads (power cables).
