    Hi all,

    I've bought a load of components for a project I'm working on (I'll post it up when I finish, I promise!:)), but I forgot to buy two LM78L06 6V voltage regulators.

    I don't really fancy paying the £5.50 delivery charge for two ICs, so is there anyone who can sell a couple to me and just pop them in an envelope?

    Thanks,

    Sparky

    I feel the same. You can buy a lot of parts free shipping on Ebay.

    Yeah, it irritates me when I send an email to a smaller company and they reply with:

    "sorry, but our minimum postage charge is £5.50."

    How hard can it be to pick one or two components and stick them in an envelope?!?!/:mad:

    You sir, are a genius.

    I found ten for £3 and free postage.

    Thanks very much.:)

    Yeah sometimes it takes longer because it comes from China. I don't like buying from China but I figure it comes from there anyway so I just avoid the middle man.

    One problem is that you need to buy way more than you need. I now have enough 1K resistors and GP transistors to last several live times. :)
