components
« on: January 31, 2008, 12:29:28 PM »
I live in a remote location and want to build some of the projects I see on this site, especially the bedini systems. I'm starting with practically no components and was wondering what online stores users here recommend. Things like magnets, coated wire, breadboards, ic's, resistors, capacitors, etc?

Thanks!

Hi Ya:
   Thats a very open ended question. Radio Shak will mail stuff. Your local hardware store should have magnets. A lot will depend on what country you are in. That for starters will give me a good idea of where to send you.

I'm in Brazil but I regularly buy from the US. I know radioshack has probably everything I need but didn't know if it was the best place in terms of cost. I know as far as magnet wire goes, there choices seem limited.

   Brazil may pose a problem as I am in the states. I do most of my components from Mouser. Not sure what they will do to you on shipping to there.  Wire will pose another problem, its gone through the roof. Last two rolls of wire cost $80 each, OUCH. Now I scavenge the best I can.

Try a guy on ebay for the wire. I think his handle is "sword and treasure" or something like that. Do a search for magnet wire and he'll pop up. He can get you exactly what you need for a reasonable price. He's got some great tesla coils too.

As for components...

www.farnell.com
www.wiltronics.com.au
www.jaycar.com
www.futurlec.com
www.rsaustralia.com

mouser, digikey.


You'll have to look around for the best deal, but you'll probably find it pays to get a batch of gear in to save you on postage.

Good Luck!

i have litle bit counted that is 19,4992564 kilograms so here is about 100-120euros.
that is lot of wire!

with 2kg or 3kg you can make lot of coils. but with 20kg you can wind a house or something big :D
