Re: thinking of getting a mac, got a few questions

Parts identification help

I've been googling my heart out, but so far have had no luck. I'm looking for information on a solenoid. It has only the following information on it:

198535-001
I512
MADE IN MALAYSIA

If anyone can help me find the specs for it, I'd really appreciate it.

While in Portland visiting my brother, I ran into a fellow forumite while browsing the beer selection at belmont station. As is my habit, I took a picture, and now present it to you for your pleasure.

Polarizing Key

This is a question that really deals with work. I need to find some .100 polarizing keys for rectangular connectors. Does anyone have a source that they use for work / home projects? Our main supplier will only sell us 9000, but we only need 100. Any help is appreciated.
