Where do you get your electronic components? (cheapest) - 02.28.2011, 06:15 PM

I'm looking at grabbing some capacitors to play around with on RC stuff.
I slapped a small cap from Radio Shack on my Micro T (huge help), but the selection is very limited here. Pretty much the biggest I could find were their 100uF 35V.
I was browsing around on Jameco Electronics, and they have a good selection, but their shipping is $6.00 for the first 2 pounds. I'm sure that's a pretty good price! but not when I'm only buying a few ounces of components...

Where is the cheapest place to get this stuff? I don't mind waiting a long time for shipping either.

Thanks

If you don't mind waiting a long time there are loads of cheap electronic components on Ebay from China.

Mouser and DigiKey are U.S. based and have huge selections. Not sure on shipping costs.

Cool, thanks.
Since I never know exactly what I want with these kinds of things (I just get a decent range plug stuff in) I like to have a more structured store like browsing system. Jameco was great as it had different capacitances and what not.
I'll do some research on some ebay stores and see what they have. I've gotten many switches from ebay, but I know more about what I'm looking for on those.

I was gonna say eBay...

I've found tons of deals on there. Most recently a pair of (lightly used) Powerex 1200V/600A IGBT modules for $74.
