    I have found some very old (but in totally pristine condition) components that are marked "Made in Australia".

    I want to make something up to send to Dave Jones, but I need a part labelled "Made in Austria".

    Can anyone help me?

    If you don't know why sending something marked with "Austria" instead of "Australia" to Dave Jones is amusing, you get out too much. :D

    Arnold was made in Austria. Just put a micro-picture of him on the part.

    Schrack relays used to be made in Austria, and I suppose they still are under the Tyco Electronics Schrack brand.

    I just went down in the workshop and found a 12V SPDT relay (8A 250VAC). If you want, I can send it to you. Just send me your address.

    Hopefully it was in good order, and not crashed? Looking forward to see what you manage to do with it. ;)

    Should we be keeping an eye out for Dave's Mailbag segments, Steve? :)
