IMHO, companies like this serve a market and provide a stable source
for otherwise unobtainium parts, allowing businesses to extend the
functional life of legacy hardware.
If you should be mad at anyone, I would think you'd be mad at the
companies that periodically pay these ludicrous prices, keeping prices
artificially high and obscure parts out of your spare parts bin.
I saw a special on DC-3 airplanes, and it talked about how this one
Alaskan airline constantly buys up all available spare parts to keep
their airframes in the air...
