    I haven't seen anybody talk about these folks were a few years, and I can't seem to find a web site. Are they still in business?

    Thanks

    How odd is this thread. Was just using a vee block tonight that had one of their labels attached. I have a Mitutoyo mic from them, bought it about 15 years ago. Their shop was in my hometown, last time I passed it 2 years ago, they were gone! I'll have to check the Clinton Ave address. My memory of them was they tried to weasel out of handling warrentee issues with items they sold.

    I came up with a hand-tapping machine with their label on it, and it has no adaptors. Thanks for providing that #, as I now want to call and see.

    From "Tool-o-Rama" to "Country Supply" ?? Sounds like going from a tooling house to a feed and seed store !

    They are actually called County Supply. I know this because we used to be at 550 Lincoln Blvd in Middlesex which was the building next door. We used to buy a lot from them in our Mfg. days.

    I believe County Supply swallowed up Ralmikes. I seem to remember County supply going "tits-up" not long ago too, I could be wrong. I haven't been in Middlesex in years.

    They were located in a once heavy industrial area. I saw many businesses bang-it-up while I was there, maybe that's why County Supply closed the doors if they did. There's nobody to sell to in that area anymore.

    What type of stuff did Ralmike's supply sell, new or used, quality or junk? Middlesex by the way still has tons of machine shops working in that area.

    Ralmikes sold new stuff. Same name brand stuff as you'd find at MSC, J&L, Penn Tool etc.

    Adammil, are you from the Middlesex area originally?

    TK,

    No, I'm from Massachusetts, but I go to school in Piscataway/New Brunswick at Rutgers University. In addition to studying Mechanical Engineering, as well as building steam engines, I'm on the schools Racing team. http://coewww.rutgers.edu/fsae/ . At the beginning of the year our machine shop was despertaly low on supplies so I suggested we try going to some machine shops and see if they have some surplus we could either buy or get donated. Some of the shops were very helpful. We got thousands of dull drillbits from a screw machine shop which with a drill doctor are good as new. Endmills galore, measuring tools and lots more. Virtually all of these very generous shops were in the Middlesex area. Their trash was our treasure, as with many students in a shop some who harldy know how to use machines, every $3 broken drill, $15 endmill, and $20 dropped caliper adds up.

    This thread brings back memories. I used to work for
    Lockheed Electronics about thirty years ago and often went to Ralmikes during lunch hour. Larry
