I thought some of you on the BB would get a kick out of this. My brother, a
few friends from work, and I took a trip today out to Norton Sales Inc. in
North Hollywood, CA. We kept hearing about the rocket engines and parts
along with other aerospace stuff that you can buy there. While a good
amount of it is truly "junk" and is in no shape to actually fly, there are
a decent number of transducers and pipes that could be put to good use. The
movie industry is their main customer for the props. Movies such as the
avengers and Iron Man have used some of the parts.
Sorry for the poor quality images, I used my camera phone. I ended up
buying the Nike-I Missile UDMH can (unused/unopened which was particularly
important) for $10 and is a neat part of history. Enjoy!
