D'oh, I put that in and then managed to obviously slice it out before I
hit send :/

Majority of them are just DPDT types, with a few even just SPDT. Not, I
suspect, enough poles to do anything serious with. They're all
PCB-mounting miniture types (honking great things with open contacts
would be nice, but I wouldn't have the space to store them even if
someone gave me a pile of them!). No idea of switch speed, but then
maximum speed would not be a design goal anyway!

They were pulled from a pile of phone exchange boards; the various CPUs,
ROM, RAM and a few useful logic chips + transistors were what I was
really after as usable spares, but it seemed a shame not to save all
those relays too.
