Got this email today on the NJARC list. Local college auction:
Hi everyone. I'm a club member and an employee of Mercer County Community
College. I take care of the electronics labs at the college.
Our rooms have recently been downsized. We now have a surplus of equipment
that we have no space for. The college has agreed to sell the equipment off
through public auction. Below is an attachment describing the bidding
process and how to contact me to make arrangement to view the equipment.
Some pieces that stick out that may interest club members include a few
Heathkit B+/C- power supplies, old Weston meters, Simpson meters, function
generators, o-scopes and more.
Unfortunately I will not be available for email contact while the auction is
going on (the network is down with the new construction).
But I can be reached at the extension listed below.
Thanks for your time.
