I just have a RAT-SHACK here. I don't know what you build with the parts
since they seem to be randomly picked for what they stock. Other than
a 2 knobs and 2 bridge rectifers and 4700 uf caps they have almost nothing
here in Canada.
I threw out my Digi-Key catalog but you still need parts from every where.

We want poly-packs back ... how do I get my 2 cent 7400's with 3 working gates
