well, Im a bit deflated.

I came in here to post all my wonderful resourses, and, alas theyve been posted.

The only things I can offer, are Phoenix contact: »www.phoenixcontact.com/com/index_1024.htm

And a rather obscure company, more suited to lasers, MWK. Ive bought stuff from them for the last 10 years or so. Good stock, but not a good web presence. Catalogs are a must

Built my first HeNe laser from them.. That was 11 years ago.. *sniff*

Fry's is good. It's not often you find a brick & morter retail store anymore where you can walk in and find a selections of IC's and small fix-it parts. (Radio Shacks small selection excluded.)
Here in the Chicagoland area we had our first Fry's open up and it is a cool place.

If we're talking local places, I *always* go to Torrance Electronics on Carson Street first. Not big on computer stuff, except for any kind of cable or adapter you'd ever need, but TONS of other stuff, including tubes.
Great people, great prices!

Gee-all of these people asking to have this thread stickied and nothing is getting done.I just came across this topic and I was wondering how far does this board go back?
Maybe I should get the old web stripper out.(Keeps the links alive as opposed to just copying)

EDIT-The oldest post I see is from 10-04-05

If you cannot fix it with a buttset and some beanies you ain't a technician.

Yes, Skycraft is awesome (even better in person; I live 5 minutes from it) and anything I can't find there I also use »action-electronics.com/ ; I have had very good luck with them.
