Heat Sinks, Hoses, Knobs, Latches, Nuts, Screws, Spacers,
Springs, Standoffs, Tubing, Washers
Manufacturers & Services

Electrical & mechanical hardware covers a pretty broad swath, but since RF Cafe is primarily an electronics and electrical themed website, there are no individual pages for bolts, bushings, casters, drawer slides, handles, hoses, knobs, latches, nuts, screws, spacers, springs, standoffs, tubing, and washers. It certainly would not be difficult to fill individual pages, most companies that make nuts also make bolts and screws and washers and other types of hardware. That would produce a lot of redundancy.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

All trademarks, copyrights, patents, and other rights of ownership to images and text used on the RF Cafe website are hereby acknowledged.
