I'd be surprised if they did, even in the old days.  How much call is 
there for a 9 volt positive linear regulator?

One of the bargains, if you can use it, is the wire-wrap tool about the 
size of a large jeweler's screwdriver.  An end cap pops off to reveal an 
AWG 30 wire stripper.  I think I found one at about $7.00 there.

Compare that with the cost of an OK or Vector WW tool.
