|Buying individual electronic components is,
surprisingly, more difficult in the modern
age of electronics than it was in the past.
The main reason is that most electronic units
(radios, TV's, computers, etc.) are bought
pre-assembled and, if they fail, are either
discarded or an entire circuit board is swapped
out. The soldering of resistors and capacitors
is left mostly to the inventors, hobbyists,
Nonetheless, a wide selection of high quality
components can be purchased by phone or online
and delivered to your door in a few days.
The array of choices is vast, which makes
it easy to find most any component you need.
And while individual components can often
be purchased in single or small quantities
very inexpensively, the shipping and handling
at some sellers can be proportionally surprising;
so, if you are looking for just a few components,
start with a company's shipping and handling
charges before comparing piece prices.
