Massive geek rummage THIS WEEKEND in Providence, RI

Providence Free Geek Rummag

J from ArtInRuins wrote in with this amazing rummage opportunity in Providence, RI on Saturday:

A friend of mine is redeveloping a former electrical parts warehouse on the West Side of Providence. He has an old basement full of diodes, wires, cable, transistors, heat sinks, timer clocks, clamps, gaskets, speaker grills, cable clamp downs, etc… that he needs to give to a good home.

This weekend he will be hosting a “rummage”. Come down, check it out, and poke around. Take what you want. There is a lot of great stuff there, a quarter of which I know what to do with.

Weather permitting, this rummage will start at 12 noon on Saturday, December 1315 and end at 4pm. The warehouse is located at 28 Wolcott Street, Providence, RI. I had a chance to check it out, and there’s lots of cool stuff there; not just the components that J mentioned, but also some interesting equipment you can see in the photo above. Some of the equipment (which includes a couple of oscilloscopes, at least at the moment) is in need of repair, but I think there’s something for everyone here. It’s free for the taking, and the good stuff will probably go first, so if you’re thinking of checking it out, don’t… just get yourself down there on Saturday!

I'm a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I'm not tinkering, I'm probably editing a book for Maker Media.
