I can't even imagine the time it took to design & build something like this. All done with no electricity, motors, or micros.

On-line store up and running!

I just published my first website: www.salvage-1.com and it should be live any minute now.

I will be adding items on a daily basis as I have over 2000 part numbers currently in stock as well as all types of unique and interesting items.

There will be certain core items, (like the soldering stations), that I will always sell but other items, (due to the nature of the surplus business), will be limited quanity. What that means is, when they're gone, they may be gone for good. I buy at auction every other Saturday so there will be new and different items added continously.

It would be great if this site would fix the "no copy/paste" problem. It's a real pain having to type in web addresses by hand, otherwise, great site.

Before there was Johnny-5

Before there was Johnny 5 or Short Circuit, there was PAL. Eric Allard, (J5's creator), created PAL, which bears a remarkable resemblance to J5. In 1987 there was a short-lived TV series called "The Wizard", and in one of the final episodes, H.E.N.R.I. VIII is accused of murder. HENRI is actually PAL slightly modified. The story pretty much bites, but there is lots of great footage of PAL from every angle.
