Kept hearing about this place, "Skycraft" at a number of workshops we attended since last year. This past week I took a short drive to downtown Orlando to checkout what all the hoopla was about.

 Except for the Flying saucer hovering over the the exterior door of the building, the outside is rather unspectacular, though a bit odd and certainly a curiosity builder. Inside however may rank up there with one of the most unusual specialty stores I've ever been in. This place is a fabricators dream!

If you've ever needed an electrical part of any kind for a prop, if this place doesn't have it, I'm not sure it exists. Besides new or used electrical motors, wiring, switches and parts of every possible type, there is an incredible supply of surplus parts. I saw everything from metal and plastic gears ( steampunk anyone?), to various LED lights, to surplus gauges, and even some military ordinance hanging from the ceilings. I spent it about thirty minutes exploring the aisles and barely scratched the surface of things they had inside.

Think Skycraft may be on my "frequent visit" list. SkyCraft Parts and Surplus, 2245 West Fairbanks Ave. Winter Park, FL 32789
