Shapiro Supply used
to have a place in the city of St. Louis
on Pennsylvania avenue, in the shadow of the Carter
Carburetor superfund site. They mostly dealt in scrap
metal, but had a modest pile of test gear and such from
McDonnell and Emerson bids. I got a few things from them.
After they moved a half mile or so NorthEast, they seemed to
get much more into the industrial supply of non-ferrous
metal, and the interesting surplus lots seemed to be much
sparser. They do still have some bits and pieces in the
basement. I haven't been there in a couple of years, I think.
