    Where can i buy a variable capacitor? Such as a place like radio shack. If there is a regular store i can go to, that is not online, would be good. Thanks for any places i can get one of these.

    Digikey.com, mouser.com, MCM electronics and maybe RF Parts Company.

    All online. (Since you do not indicate what country you are in... I have no idea what stores are near you.)

    What is the range of the capacitor? That can make quite a difference.

    A variable capacitor's range is in the picofarads. They were widely used for tuning radios.

    What is your intended application?
