    Just though I'd mention - theres a place in Taree NSW across from the RTA they stock resistors, caps etc. I was surprised when no dick smith or tandy could supply me any of that stuff any more. Apparently they dont deal with them any more in Taree.

    I believe Dick Smith (Now called DSE) no longer stocking components? Went into the Toombul Brisbane store a few months back looking for a jack plug. Most trays were empty. Asked the store guy sarcasticly if they were getting out of selling electronics compnents and he said they are.

    Unfortunatley, Jaycar are a decade behind. Too many farting men and velcro dartboards for sale there now. Time will tell.

    This is true. With the rebranding that is occurring, all components are going. No longer focusing on the 'hardcore' electronics (capacitors, resistors, thermometers, LEDs, micro controllers etc), more so on the home side of electronics such as TVs, computers, sound systems, GPS, cameras, gaming.

    Just wanted to add some respect for Mousers Fedex shipping. (This was the "free shipping for orders over $200")

    Made my order Thursday 17Dec, on the ground Sunday and at my door in Perth, Monday morning 21st Dec. 3 business days from Fort Worth, USA. Well Done.

    Anyone dealt with Worldwide Electronic Components in Perth recently, No shop front anymore, their website hasn't seen an update since 07 by the looks, no idea how current the price lists are, looks like 07 also?

    Added some details to the Aus shops, whether they are online stores or have a shop front. A lot more helpful if you need parts quick.

    FYI Farnell is changing to Element14

    Must cost a pretty penny for them to change names ...wonder why??

    element 14 = silicon

    Farnell > element-14

    The global Premier/Farnell group has six or so different names in different markets. (Premier, Farnell, Newark, ...) They're switching to a single, global brand that ties in with the EE online community they have set up (with the "Ben Heck" hacking show, interesting)

    Use a direct link for RS Australia on wiki instead:
    http://australia.rs-online.com/

    They have overnight free shipping (Probably worth mentioning that somewhere on wiki) with tracking (works one out of two times). Awesome service so far. Cheaper than other places I've tried.


    edit:
    except today. I ordered parts yesterday, but were not delivered today. apparently they had a blackout or something yesterday. should be receiving my parts tomorrow D:

    I don't know if this has been mentioned here, but www.oshpark.com is a nice cheapish place to get PCBs made.

    USD$5 a square inch, and $5 is the cheapest shipping option. As a plus, all the pads are gold plated, and the soldermask is purple....

    At last a metal ruler with tenths of inches on one side. Checked with my Mitutoyo dial caliper and 2" read 50.8mm. Amazon had a ruler but it seems to have been made in India and the quality was horrid. These aren't Starrett quality. The metal could be a guage thicker, the plastic sleeve is a joke but for a couple of dollars it's more than good enough for most tasks. I'd also have preferred a 12" ruler but meh.
