Re: [TCML] Old TRW technical flea market in LA

I attended the TRW meet a year ago while on vacation. It was sure not
the way I remembered from previous times. I do not think I would go out
of my way to attend it in the future. While in So Cal, I went to Apex
Surplus in San Fernando at the recommendation of Ed Phillips. Now there
is an old fashion surplus store. It is much better than TRW.
Apex is an interesting place (and I don't know that I'd want to be in
there during an earthquake). However, their pricing strategy is
somewhat peculiar. They do a lot of prop rental to the movie/TV
industry, so things that "look cool" or retro tend to be expensive,
because they'd rather rent them to a propmaster for $100/day than sell it.
It's a great place if you want circular MIL connectors.
