I general, I agree, C&H is pretty pricey... however, you never know....
As for the big sign, that's indeed true. However, I've talked to

We figured as much. I'm sure they own the store outright as it's been there
forever, so they don't even have to cover rent. JPL is going through a big
cleanup getting rid of much surplus from "Cheli". JPL has to move all the
"junk" from Cheli, so they're on a mission to excess and sell as much as
possible. We thought that maybe C&H was making room for future acquisitions
from JPL junk sales.
For those of you in the appropriate areas, a call to the Excess Property
Disposal folks at Jet Propulsion Lab (http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/ probably has
links) might not be a bad idea. As an employee, t! here are all sorts of
restrictions on what I can buy (some shenanigans in the past at other gov't
labs with employees marking equipment as "excess", and then buying for
resale), but, in general, it's the usual pallet load sales to highest
bidder. Many, many computers with no or destroyed hard drives. Probably
lots of nice obsolete test equipment (meaning it's not cost effective to
keep in cal and repair, but perfectly good.. ) I saw some enormous (16")
diffusion pumps being shipped off as excess, and also some monster variacs.
Who knows how that stuff gets disposed of.
