HELP! HELP! HELP!

I am going to be spending two weeks with my wife's extended family in
Hemet CA. I am REALLY going to need to get away from these people and
spend some time doing something I like so I can relax a bit. Can
anyone suggest any good surplus stores in the L. A. area? I know that
spending some good quality time with machines or electronics or optics
will relax me.
Thanks,
Eric R Snow

        --Suggest you mosey on down South Santa Fe Ave. It's loaded with
used machine tool dealers. Enjoy!

Right on, Eric. I can identify with your situation. Sorry I can't be of any
help other than sympathy.

Eric, you don't know how fortunate you are!

Hemet was the location of the secret headquarters of L. Ron Hubbard, the
founder of Dianetics, and the greatest humbug which this world has ever known.
P.T. Barnum was the best known man of his time, but Hubbard made Barnum look
like an amateur.

The following is an excerpt from Russell Miller's "Bare-Faced Messiah", which,
by the way, happens to be on the web:

"In many ways, Hemet was an ideal place to hide.  It was a sleepy little
farming town, surrounded by orange groves and unremarkable in every way except
perhaps for its resemblance to a Rockwell painting.  Its main street signs
reflected quiet respectability, small-town values and quintessential Americana:
Sun-up Milk Drive-In; Dollar Saver; Smile Jesus Loves You; Hemet Retirement
Home; Happy Birthday Doug & Laura; *** Mortuary; Hemet Motel Pets Welcome;
Gun Shop; Church of the Open Bible...The Commodore's new base was behind Lee's
Acupuncture Clinic, adjacent to a Pick n' Save supermarket and a drive-in
McDonald's."

This was the scene when Hubbard moved in at the end of March in 1979, so some
of the scenery might have changed in the interim.  If you could snap some
polaroids, and then scan and web them, some of the ARSers might get a kick out
of it (alt.religion.scientology newsgroup, deprogrammers, etc.).  Then again,
if you're not into mad science (read "abnormal psychology") you could always
hang out at the gun shop!

Cheers

Rancho Metals and Supply
surplus metals and neat wornout old machines
(36 inch shaper!)
actually in Murrieta, very near Hemet
677-8586

for machines you'll need to go into LA/Orange county.  Not something
that I'd want to do during the holidays.

I  can send you a copy of Machinery Journal and ??  Machine Tools West
??  that list a ton of new/used dealers.

regards,

Isn't Hemet where famous drag racer Connie Callitta is from too?
