Help buying electronics on the internet.

I'm going to buy usb arduino board,  some leds , breadboard and some other stuff and I would like to ask a couple of questions.(I've never bought a thing on internet :S )I chose shipment payment when do I pay for it  (does it sum up with the items, or do I pay in mail office)?(PS. I live in Lithuania) What does this mean : First Class Mail International Package $3.44 NOT TRACKED, NOT INSURED "NOT TRACKED, NOT INSURED"?and there's also International Economy (4-5 Days)   $37.48which is really not attracting me because it would cost a lot (atleast it would for me )  and it would cost more then the item I'm buying.How long would it take to ship the items(2~3 weeks?)?Thanks for reading.Help would be really appreciated :)

Help a newbie buy the right motor

I'm endeavoring on an art project which basically consists of a motor attached to a mobile, though I'm quite illiterate when it comes to electronics. The motor that has a fair amount of torque, and I need to have precise control over the speed. Ideally, it should be quiet as well. I was thinking this might be a good time to venture into the foreign territory of Arduino and servos, but again I know nothing. Any advice or resources you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Lance

Help a newbie buy resistors

Hi there, I'm creating a simple circuit project for my students, though I don't know the first thing about electronics, so I foolishly bought tons of LEDS and 9V clips without the resistors - Doh! But now that I know I needs resistors, I'm not sure which type of resistors I need. A list like this is quite daunting to choose from. The LEDs I'm using need 1w resistors (I think...). Please feel free to ask my any questions or hand out other advice. Thanks! Lance

Which arduino borad to buy?

Http:// Hello! And i am interested in starting arduino! But i am not familiar with the hardware spec of arduino boards. I have some electronics and programming bg as an physics student. I read the above tutorial, the led matrix looks like a easy/cool starter project. However, i have a question, For 4 by 4 matrix, it need 4 outputs and 4 grounds. With 14 i/o pins on an arduino uno (0to13), is 7 by 7 the maximum for upscaling this design without multiplexing? Or if i can get a "shield" that add more pins to the uno? Should i just get a arduino mega with 54 I/O pins? Since it is not that expensive, Is the tutorial compatible with a mega? Actually my target build is two 15 by 15 matrix displaying identical image. Can i rig up two identical led matrix, connect both in parallel to the same board? Thank you in advance! for your replies!!

I'm looking for an inexpensive telescope mirror to attempt some DIY Schlieren photography. I don't need a flawless one that you would put in a telescope and use in an observatory, I'm looking for the one that fell off the back of an astronomer's truck on the way up the mountain and got a scratch down one side and a nick in the silvering to make it worthless for astronomical observing.

Need a 30 watt "LASER"

Looking for an inexpensive laser cutting/engraving system. I will be taking it apart and  customizing it to fit onto another machine.  Currently, we have a rotating blade to cut sheets of material, but this set-up causes many issues.  A contact free solution would be best.  So I want to mount the laser carriage above the cutting area; the rest of the laser parts will be contained in a metal cabinet under the machine.  The laser would need to be able to travel 12-16 inches in 1-2 seconds and cut through 1-5 mil paper/poly material. I have a fair amount of experience with lasers, I have know how to sight them in and understand the technology.  We currently have 45, 100 and 400 watt galvo head lasers, as well as a 90 watt XY laser set-up. So, what website would you direct me to, to purchase an inexpensive laser system?

Pro member's discount and other

I was looking through the discounts that pro instructables members get (which I am). I saw a 10% off your purchase from adafruit. It said that you can only use it once but I have never used it before. I was trying to buy an arduino uno, full sized breadboard, and breadboard wires. When I entered the code that I got (which I wont say on here but private message me if you need to know it) in the "enter gift certificates or discount codes" box in your cart it says invalid coupon code. Away from that, On the iOS app running iOS 6.1.6, there are many glitches in the app. One of them is that in the contest tab, it only shows some of the current contests, none of the finished and rarely it will show one that is being judged or open for voting only. Then it doesn't show all of the contests. For example, today, 6/30/14 at 4:30 pm Pacific time, It shows 15 out of 23 contests. It shows the contests: squeeze ore out of summer, Epilog 6, summer #mikehacks, paint it, great outdoors, lego, knex, metal, home tech, hair and makeup, concrete, glue, bbq, swimwear, and battery contest. The ones it doesn't show on the app that appear on the website are green design, launch it, wheels, outdoor workshop, bees, tarun featured author, r/c, and pallet contests.  Some website problems are also there, Often times you will have to click search twice because the first time it will just go to the featured page. You also have to click twice to place a comment. I'm not sure if this is a bug but I posted a Q and A topic about how I haven't got a medal for different things like being featured and getting views and also comments. I've got one featured and about 13.5k views. I should have two bronze medals. In the Q and A topic someone answered that I might not be able to get them for a certain amount of time: e.g. a year, I've been a member for about six months, so I thought that might be true.Then I saw that Bhawya already has 6 achievements including 3 medals, and she has been a member for less time than me. Also, a suggestion, it would be nice to have forums, groups, and Q&A; on the iOS app. And a collections section.
