I'm workin on catching up with you two. I'm up to about 1200 line items now and adding new items every month. Eventually I will be able to sit down and build with no concern for whether I have a part in my stock or not, because I will have it already. My general rule is if I need one I order 2, if it is available as a lot of 10 or more and the price is reasonable I go for that. Just got 50 4711's for 8 bucks just the other day off of Ebay. I'm always looking for missclassified or misscategorized parts that are way too cheap and tend to snatch those up quick. Picked up a grab bag that was 10 pounds of components for 10 dollars.. Can't go wrong with that kind of deal no matter what is in the bag, plus it is fun exploring it when it arrives...That bag must have had at least 100 different pot and probably over a thousand each of caps and resistorsOMG! This guy spent his whole life organizing his store/stock.
I'm almost there too!
I came to the same conslusion. A small, carefully chosen inventory can go a long way. Although, I do dream of opening an electronics surplus store someday, if for nothing else, to replace those which have disappeared over the years.Much better to focus on a core bench stock that you know well and order the tidbits you need as you need them.
