Excellent product  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
After picking through hamfests and junk boxes for years, I had almost given up finding a strong feed-thru insulator to support the open wire line entry through the shack wall bulkhead.

I currently run the individual wires through Teflon sleeves, however this provides ingress for bugs and moisture.

There are very few manufacturers still in business providing larger size porcelain hardware, especially feed-thrus in small quantities, that are also "ham friendly".

While they are not cheap, the quality is very good (cork seals are provided) and the company was a pleasure to deal with.

I was originally reluctant to call about a purchase below their 25 piece minimum, however Lori Davidek handled my order and was able to find a small amount of available stock for immediate shipment (normal lead time is 4 weeks).

She says their business model is specifically designed to service small orders and to always call with needs not addressed by their website.

I ordered three pieces to satisfy their $50 minimum order amount and have a spare.

Their website includes many other standard & unusual products available for purchase in small quantities, along with cross references for Belden and Alpha wire products.
