RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Manufacturers & Services

As someone who has always enjoyed working with my hands on the macro scale with buildings and houses, on the mid-level scale with hobbies and crafts, and down to the micro scale with tiny surface mount components and bare die ICs, I have a great appreciation for the providers of tools for work at all levels. My personal tool collection, while not extensive compared to many, has expanded over the years to service most of the tasks that I have needed to do. They range from the size of a table saw, on down to pin-thin tweezers. Listed here are a few good quality suppliers of such tools for performing mechanical and electrical/electronics jobs.
