    ... not pay throught the nose for shipping?


    I want to tweak the crossovers in my mini book shelf speakers. So, I only need to buy a couple of resistors and capacitors and such... but, Partsexpress wants to charge me $6 in shipping on $8 worth of parts!

    Where do you guys fill your small orders?

    Let's get real, the cost of the parts has nothing to do with the cost of shipping.

    Many electronic parts suppliers have a minimium order of $25 and that excludes shipping.

    Can you find them locally for $14?

    The usual thing to do is wait until the order size is large enough to justify the shipping cost.

    Dave,

    It really makes no sense for someone living in a major metropolitan area to mail order such common parts. If you can’t find what you’re looking for at Radio Shack, a local electronics hobby shop should carry any component you need in any value you need. If not, they can probably special order for you with no shipping penalty.

    Regards,
