Historically, "Selectronics" has handed everything from Univac I machines to parts of the ETA10 (essentially the last "big-iron" "super computer").


      3411 Grays Ferry Ave

I haven't been there in years, but their website implies that they have quite an assortment of "stuff."

There is also an "importer/manufacturer" located out Baltimore pike just this side of Lansdowne Avenue. Off hand I don't remember their name, but they do have a website.
They make an assortment of "white boxes" and have all kinds of parts for sale -- but you have to know what you want and ask for it. ... nothing at all like Frys or even Radio Shack.
