Website Describing CNC-Era Component Makers

Hey Guys,

Once upon a time there was a website that seemed to date from the late 1990s, and had lengthy descriptions and histories of the various mid to late 1990s cult CNC components makers and their components. Such as: Syncros, Cook Bros, Kingsbury, Weyless, Kooka, Ringle, etc. etc.

It was a superb resource for learning the history of the era and for identifying orphan parts. In some ways the website resembled a closeout catalog, listing what price the website once sold the parts for.

It's been over a year since I was on the website. But now I can't find it. Anybody remember the site and what it was called??

IIRC, this was a catalog operation in the early/mid '90's. The catalog operation died with the obsession for purple anodized CNC cranks, but someone is paying the bills to maintain the web presence. I agree, it's a great reference for the way things were.
