To all:

	Some time ago, I suggested we tabulate sources of replacement parts
for mass spec repairs. I initially received a number of responses, and have
been tabulating info from the communiques among us. I will continue to do
this, but would like to disseminate the small list I have already put
together. Any additions or corrections would be appreciated.

	The following is a tabulation of responses to my usergroup query on
third party vendors of parts for Finnigan MAT and VG/Fisons IRMS systems.
The order is not indicative of choice or recommendation. Rather it reflects
the order that e-mail msgs got copied and pasted into this document. I will
continue to update this list as new sources/resources arrive.

Resource #1 :

	My name is Michael S. Leary and our company is O'Hara Spectrometer
Services and we specialize in the MAT line. We have exchange parts and
offer service well below the Finnigan price,which is not to hard. We also
offer a unique service where we fingerprint your system (any type) down to
the chip level and store it on disk so we can repair your parts with a
turnaround as short as 24 hours.
