    Hello,

    Here I have a list of cross reference lists that I collected over the years.

    Thanks, maybe you can add them to the 'Resources' section of the forum?

    Ooooo, I really like this latest cross-reference you found.
    Very complete reference for the older parts I'm often trying to find the equivalents for.
    Thanks again.

    I know of several from matthieu benoit, who has done a fine job posting some very helpful cross references. He was on this site once years ago apparently checking ElectronicsPoint out, for a very brief time. I tried to message him to thank him for the work he's done, but he was in and out of here before I could contact him.
    I'll check out the bitsavers link, thanks for that reference.
    My most irritating problem is finding obsolete parts, or equivalents for them, and I'm big on collecting any cross-reference information to do that. I suppose I'm a dinosaur keeping old gear working, all the newbies are into the present-day components. There may not be many of us left and we're a dying breed, but the early gear was well-designed by a relatively few manufacturers, and most of it was designed to BE repaired, instead of junked like the latest Chinese stuff.
    Watchmakers and automobile buffs seem to think like me in that I see beauty in the craftsmanship that went into the old electronic equipment, and I enjoy working on a lot of it.
    Thanks again for the cross reference information you've been listing on this website. I can't be the only one who appreciates it.

    I don't know how you're finding this great cross-references, but I'm glad you do.
    Thanks

    I don't know how Google displays their searches.
    I can ask for something one day and find it, then a couple days later, looking for the same item, Google will
    direct me somewhere else. Maybe Google only give you one-shot at an information request.
    Sounds like I need to start looking at Yahoo advanced search, never tried that before.
