1/11/2008 Update - I just called the number for Electronics Barn above, and it seems to have been taken over by another company. The person on the phone told me that I should go to NTEINC.com [4], and get part numbers, then I could order and pick up parts between 9-3.

I then went to nteinc.com, looked at the NJ distributors. Interestingly, one was listed in Bloomfield, and has a web site, here: [5]. The address appears to be the same. So Electronics Barn appears to now be a distributor called Solid State, Inc.
