I tend to agree that it would be nice to offer "deals" to the folks here. 
Sometimes, with small quantities, it's not worth going to the "Big-Boys".

But I really don't see any way to do it without turning the list into a 
swap-shop. The traffic load is high enough, and I guess I am degrading the 
S/N even with this post.

Isaac said his list is not E-Bay, and we are all certainly glad for that, and 
appreciate his providing it.

A local LUG usually provides customers for this type of equipment, if you 
don't want to go national.
