I've dealt with friends who have been selling parts in the mode of what 
you'd call "schlock" parts forever.  In their case no rebranding or any 
of the foolishness going on now

What they do deal with is that when they get a request (such as when you 
submit your request), they will send out the request if they don't stock 
the parts to a network of associates.  They will respond if they have 
it.  In my friends case, they've been in the business for 40 years, and 
one of the brothers selling IC's and the like for nearly 50.

If you hit any one of them, you will likely hit all of them, since the 
request you send in is shared.

I always send my business thru my friend, to be sure I don't have a 
problem, but others probably have not had the connections like that.

For this part, by the way, you might try electromavin.  He's been buying 
parts for at least 40 years I know of, and would probably know your 
part, and if he doesn't have it would be an excellent source to hit the 
network of connector parts vendors.

The site and contact for him is here


A scary thing, he may be retiring, as are a lot of these, and the stocks 
will likely not be saved from the final trip to the gold scrappers.  
(who sold them a lot of the parts in the first place).

I know he is currently selling parts, as a friend is building up a lot 
of HP test equipment test cable sets for a number of instruments he is 
bringing up, and the sort of winchester looking connector you have 
there, he has in stock.  Also the Canon d-sub body stuff.
