  • Surplus Shed 48% off 3 day sale

    I got an email from Surplus Shed with a special offer of 48% off the entire order. Sale ends Wednesday 8/6/14 at midnight. They mostly have optics (lenses, optical comparators, magnifiers) but also a large number of gears, some of which are the Module 1.0 used in some lathes like the G4000 and HF 9x20. And some tools and electronic components. I got a precision Sterling 48DP 3:1 reduction bevel gear set for $10, some timing belts and pulleys, 25 pitch sprockets, and some optocouplers.

    The website is:

    The discount code I got is SS81410

    Shipping is a flat rate $6.

    I don't know if it works for anyone or just returning customers.

    Thanks Paul. Almost everything I looked at was listed as "out of stock". I did get a batch of 10 optical flats for $26 with the shipping though.
    The discount code worked fine for me.

      Discount code worked for me too and I saved a fair bit. Not to mention finding out a whole new, very interesting supplier of stuff I did not know I needed.

        Slightly reminiscent of John Meshna back in the 50s and 60s, but no longer or not much mil electromechanical surplus. They run these sales about 3-4 months apart. I bit on
        one about 18 months ago and it took about a month for the order to be sent. Called several times and it is evidently a very small operation overwhelmed, then, with orders.
        Hope they ship faster now.

          I've purchased stuff from them previously and they seemed to fill the order and ship it pretty quickly. They are in PA which is adjacent to MD. I like getting interesting stuff from surplus dealers like this.

          Another good company that's been around since I was a kid (when I also saw stuff from Meshna) is Herbach-Rademan, website I bought some heavy duty 10 pitch gears from them, and I might use them as a reduction drive for one of the electric tractors I'm working on. Here are the gears, and at that price it may be worth it just for the material:

 (only $3)

 (also $3)

          The two together make a 2.4:1 reduction drive with probably enough torque capacity for a bulldozer. Or a pretty awesome back gear for my lathe to get a low speed of 50 RPM.

          Another good place for lots of oddball stuff is Surplus Sales of Nebraska:

          And I also like Marlin P. Jones. I bought a couple of very powerful stepper motors for cheap recently, but those are now sold out. I also got an interesting pneumatic cylinder:

          Couldn't resist for just $4!

          And I got some nice small laptop type switching supplies from them. Like this 16V 3.75A (60W) adapter for $3. Makes a pretty good 12V battery charger if you add some voltage/current regulation circuitry:

            If you are near enough to visit them it's worth the time, they are in an old musty school building and it's a real throwback to the surplus places of days gone by. Plenty of stuff that's not shown on the site, as well.
