A special heaven on earth for geeks and hacks and hams and engineers. Located on Queen Street West in Toronto, Active Surplus sells all manner of odd electronic and mechanical supplies and rejects and parts. If you want dead hard drive platters to use as coasters, you can get them there. If you want a monochrome transparent LCD display, you can probably get it there. Telephones? Yep. Radio parts? Ditto. You just have to find it, first. And don't try to take it back, of course.
