Boeing / Pratt & Whitney Surplus sales…

SurplusContributor to Kevin Kelly’s Cool Tools, Shin Ae, scores at a Boeing / Pratt & Whitney Surplus sale – I weld, build, and purposely tangle myself up in lots of computers/servers. I discovered two surplus stores that not only provide material fuel for all of the aforementioned activities but at a great discount no less. Both stores are open to the public and offer everything from large precision machinery to fiber optic cables to airplane leather by the roll (!). I spotted a Herman Miller Eames molded office chair at the Boeing store (sold tag on it) while I was walking out with my $15 in purchases, an IBM M-series (clickety) keyboard, and a portable DIGITAL anti-static electronics workspace circa 1970.

    There is also a Boeing Surplus Store in Wichita, KS. They have sheets of metal, plastic, wood and other raw materials. There are also drill presses as well as office furniture and filing cabinets. Plenty of old computer equipment–sometimes odd things, I saw a unit with 4 200MHz processors today. Open only on Fridays.

    You have mis-attributed the posting from Kevin Kelly’s (very good) website. The post above truncates the full text of the original, including the signature of the original writer, who is NOT Kevin Kelly.
    As a Make subscriber AND the best friend of the original poster (I’ve accompanied her to both surplus stores many times), I expect you to get your references right.
