Comment Nostalgia in Pasadena - C&H Surplus (Score 1) 138

C&H Surplus had a wonderful store on an increasingly pricey stretch of Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena, CA, but had to relocate several miles east as rents and property values increased. Its former proximity to Caltech and JPL (and sundry assorted neighborhood subcontractors) yielded up tons and aisle after aisle of high grade test equipment, massive power supplies, relay racks, and who-knows-what. I remember getting into a yelling match with my mom (40 years ago) that a hulking Tektronix oscilloscope I picked up was not a "television" (which I was not allowed to have in my bedroom!) After a little cosmetic work, I ended up selling it for a small profit -- to a bigger geek than I was/am.

ah, walking down memory lane . . . .
