Electronic Goldmine! I tried it.. and give it an A+

Unread postAuthor: scottcrete » Sun Mar 30, 2008 10:32 pm

Hey guys.. check out the website called elctronic goldmine.. its great.. the prices are too.. I bought a bunch of fans and L.E.D.'s and motors.. and diodes.. and resistors.. from them.. got a surpise box to.. and i should tell ya.. if your looking for any electronic parts for your launchers.. this is the place to get them.. the shipping is 16.00 but thats not bad considering you can..

example
price of a 12 volt fan 1.00 - 4.00

radio shack fan (competitor) 17.99 for the cheapest one..


so that shows you the difference in their prices.. they are great.. just get on yahoo.. and look up..

ELECTRONIC GOLDMINE

and you will be able to find this wonderful site.. if someone can link it on here that would be great too.. and if anyone else knows of any other really discounted electronic parts.. please post it in this thread..

thanks.. hope this help you guys with not much money.."like me"

If I was inclined to I could be at Electronic Goldmine's headquarters in ~20 minutes. It's on the other side of town.

Anyways it's a great place to get stuff.

Bah, we don't have that here, but there are a few stores around here with very reasonable pricing.

Just FYI, Radio Shack is ripoff city. They charge like $3 for a toggle switch...do I get my name engraved on it with purchase?
