BARGAINS!

I thought I'd start a thread for this, just for people to post good deals they see on components or gear that others may be interested in.

I wanted some 5V regulators and came across this:

That should last me a while for not a lot of money

Fair fucks.  Topic has been added to favourites!  Thanks guys.

Will post any worthy deals I find.

 

Actually, any chance you could "thumbtack" this topic to the top of the page please Mark?  I'm sure it would prove very beneficial to many.

The ones above do not ship to the UK. I bought these and they took just over a week to arrive. Not sure if that was a fluke but I'll be buying from them again. All sealed and boxed in 25's

50 pcs £63.87 free p+p

Slightly cheaper ones and no need to get 50 (can get just 10 if you prefer):

been looking for some resistor kits to stock up and came across these

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120962771537?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/220719314224?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Haven't purchased them as of yet so don't know about postage times etc.

They do include quite a few unuseful values but all in all are looking a good deal still. If anyone has anything better of course I'll be happy to be hear about it! :)

EDIT: saw these too, work out at something like £0.003 each! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2500Pcs-50-Value-1R-10MR-1-4W-Metal-Film-Resistors-Assortment-Kit-/390565553641?pt=UK_BOI_Electrical_Components_Supplies_ET&hash=item5aef8565e9

Just a week ago I got this metal film kit

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200911481121

Should last me a good long while.

As for the quality, they are the same if not a bit better than your regular Tayda resistor. Flimsy-ish leads but pretty and shiny and no oxidation to be found anywhere. All values stamped on paper strip. Good enough for me.

Shipping time is one month but then again most anything takes that long to get to me.

These were the cheapest 3PDTs I could find which I keep in my watched items for whenever I need them.  They do them in black too.

These wires are excellent - pre-cut and tinned:

They do other colours & lengths too.

They have really sped my builds up - perfect for wiring pots, footswitch and jacks.

Re: BARGAINS!

I've looked at those a while back...
- are they solid or stranded?
- are they tinned all the way through or just the exposed ends?
