Starting out as electronic hobbyist. What electric components (not tools) would be good to have around workshop? Answered
I'm just starting out as an electronics hobbyist, and I am finding it is getting prohibitively expensive. I don't have the ability to dumpster dive for parts, nor can I run to the local electronics shop for every resister I need. Mail ordering for one or two parts for a specific project gets ridiculously expensive, not because the parts are expensive but due to shipping. I'd like to simply place one big order for the majority of parts I will need for most projects. So, if you were going to spend say 100 bucks to buy electric components to play with, what would you buy to keep on hand?
