    Default ...Best Electronics parts source "EVER" !!

    ...talk about "SERVICE" !!! Ordered 2 tiny fuses ( rare NAD fuses - 1/10 A & 3/8A) about 2 days ago from the middle of the US. Received attached today! 2 fuses were less than $3.50.....no service charge and 2 day "First Class USSP" service....$2.40. So there are still reputable US companies. "HIGHLY" recommend for your electrical parts. Don't even bother with "RAT Shack". The gas will cost you more to find out they don't have "it" !!

    ps....the 2 fuses are the size of a normal stamp.

    ...Gatta Give Credit WHEN credit is due!!!! It's a $1.5 Billion dollar company. ....5 STARS

    Nice to see businesses that still earn their customers and success from good service and products and not deceptive marketing or tactics.

    Use them almost weekly. Love their search engine. Mouser is a good compliment. There are other distributors that I use but no need to list here. I use a stock locator sometimes to find out where to get parts:

    click on inventory search. Most franchised distributor stocks (including Digikey's) are searchable from this site.

    Digikey is a great American company located in Thief River Falls Minnesota - they've never had a layoff.

    Digikey and Mouser are both very good suppliers, as are Parts Express and MCM Electronics (the latter two not hard-core parts, but still useful).
    Those of us with more - arcane - tastes also like to shop Antique Electronics Supply.
    all the best,

    I like mouser for its sort and filter options. This comes in handy when selecting a part instead of finding a specific one.
