Look like they could do some precision damage in the wrong hands.

I got nothing new today.

I like this thread. I want to contribute but will have to wait as all I got in the post recently was that plastic weld stuff I will most likely forget about when I actually need it.

In the last few days I've had a box full of lovely retina burning leds from comet ( screw you HMRC....I win again...until next time! ), 3 flipper rebuild kits and a few psu components from Andy N and some T molding. Not bad. Hopefully next week will bring another 300lb wooden box of happiness :)

Nothing much in fact the opposite.
Got a wad of cash for selling my peachy Addams.
Which will be going to fund The Walking Dead LE.

Always good when you get home to presents, today was a bumper day, a parts book for my SOF , some JP dinosaurs and 2 great neon's won of ebay cheap, had to put them straight up. Happy days :)
Did you get the neons from the US? How the hell they get here unbroken?!?!?!? And did you get shafted with import tax?

100 x 555 timer chips.
Ordered 10 from aliexpress for 99p and somehow they sent 100 :p
Result! There is some seriously cheap stuff from the East. I needed one of the little pink headphone sockets for my son's gaming PC . Couldn't even find one in the UK and the closest thing was around £2-3. So I ordered 50 of exactly the right sockets in pink from China for £3.95! I'll keep a couple and the rest are going back on eBay to be sold individually.

Today I got:

eBayCaps.JPG

4 x 15,000uF 35V capacitors. These are the C23 smoothing caps for the +5VDC section on Bally regulator boards (AS-2518-16, AS-2518-22, AS-2518-107, AS-2518-147).

Another little eBay bargain - £1.50 each, almost half price from Mouser, Farnell, etc.. Queue onslaught of comments about only Panasonic caps being good enough but Nichicon are fine in my book too :D
