Who you are and where you have been is none of our business!
Each dealer listing carries a brief description of their specialty. Web sites and e-mail addresses are included too!
Note that no "registration" or "membership" is required to use this list. Also... your computer will not be invaded by "cookies." There are no gaudy backgrounds, needless pictures, slooow-loading PDF files, annoying pop-ins, frame clutter, incompatible tables, etc.
When contacting dealers please mention that you saw them on Big-List.com. That will help remind them to keep their listing info updated. Thanks!
It helps to know the exact make, model and options you're looking for. You should know the new price for the item if it's still available new. It doesn't make any sense to pay 90% of the new price to buy a used unit. For example, used bubble leak detectors have been seen listed for sale for as much or more than one could buy a new one.
Do shop around... Consider the example of a used Keithley 619 Electrometer/Multimeter. This model was last manufactured around 1990 when it sold for about $4000. Quotes for a used unit ranged from $800 to $3700. Quotes for a HP3581C meter ranged from $600 to $3000. A 5:1 range in not uncommon!
Excercise caution when using eBay. When considering an eBay purchase always use the 'ask the seller a question' feature to contact the seller before placing a bid. Ask them anything, it doesn't matter what the question is. If you don't get a reply, don't bid. Don't risk dealing with an unresponsive seller.
Don't batch Fax or email (= spam) every dealer on this directory! Several have removed their Fax numbers, or even their entire listing, because of such inconsiderate activities. Don't ruin a good thing - be selective. Never send emails greater than about 100k, or include attachments. Megabyte emails can take many minutes to download on dialup connections and attachments are taboo as they are how most viruses are spread. If you have a large want list or photos of equipment you're selling - post them on a web page and just email the URL link.
Ask about: * Warranty? Most serious dealers offer one. (Although sometimes large production machinery is sold without warranty.) * How many days Right of Return? It is common to be given several days. * Does the instrument come freshly calibrated? If so, does it come with a calibration certification? * Are all of the accessories and manuals included? It's common for the better dealers to include everything that was included by the manufacturer when the equipment was sold new. Note that some cables, probes, etc., are very expensive. Be sure that they're included if you need them. * What options are included? Example: a HPIB interface. * When is the equipment available for delivery? Sometimes they are out on rental.
