Unhappy Death of Pedroskova

My husband died suddenly leaving hundreds of capacitors, resisters, fuses, transformers, etc. I would rather not throw them away but I need to get rid of them somehow. Any ideas?

BK I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. If you are willing to post your general location (ie city), I'm sure that some members who are in the vicinity could offer help to sort out what you have and perhaps sell on your behalf. If there is a local audio club they may also be able to help.

Any intelligence I may appear to have is purely artificial!

Very sad, but what you do here is a great tribute to his passion.

Our deepest sympathies on your loss. Peter was a great contributor here and will be missed.

If you can box them up by type (box of capacitors, box of resistors) and take a few pictures and any details you DO have, you can post them here and I'm sure people will offer you some value.

Another widow was in your position recently and I was able to help hook her up with a conscientious friend in the SF Bay area who took the bits off her hand, paid her, and generally was helpful in cleaning up the hobby stuff. Perhaps someone here is in VA? If I knew someone I'd refer them to you.

Third, if you just want rid of it all at once, I'll take a box of loose bits and parse them out for people (no profit) and send you some money for the trouble and shipping, but you'll get more value back with one of the first two methods.

Too much to handle in the next few days but I have audio people coming on Thursday to tell me what they will want as well as an LP person who wants to make an offer on Peter's record collection. After those people I will be more able to see what is left here. What a nightmare. I am hoping that joining this forum I will not only be able to communicate with all you crazy people (Peter was one of you and I adored him) but also offer his things to someone.

Unless you personally know the "audio people" coming in to purchase the equipment, please be careful.
There is some excellent advise in the above posts, and one "kind" offer.
