Lived close to the old Heath co & have a HW-100 I had completly rebuilt & a 12v cordset made & never used it. Also bought their last Heath labled Yausea never used either even thou I get my tech licence. Have a realtor coming today, something else to sell. Amazing how much stuff you think you have to have & don't.

I never built anything. I was in their flying club as the has 2 4 seaters & I had all 2 seat pre wars till the Bonanza but their maintanence wa such I wouldn't fly my family in their planes so I wasn't in for long. Pilots are the cheapest people as am I but not at the risk of safety as it's a very unforgiving sport. Here's 2 links you'll enjoy.

Dang...Heathkit stuff is collectible now....either bring it to Q to sell at the hamfest, or sell it on one of the ham radio websites...some collectors will give top dollar for some of the most obscure Heathkit items. 

They might give you $50 for an original power cord, or $300 for an old piece of Heathkit test equipment that sold for $20 brand new.

It's amazing.
