Electronic components suppliers in Sydney Northern suburbs

  1. I've just moved from Melbourne, where I knew a number of good local suppliers,
    to Roseville (near Chatswood) in Sydney's north, and I'm stumped for suppliers.
    This has to be wrong, isn't Chatswood a major technology hub?

    There's Jaycar in Greenwich, that's the best I've found. Altronics is down in
    Auburn on Parramatta Rd, WES in Liverpool Rd Ashfield, DSE doesn't count (hasn't
    for years). RS, if you wanted to walk in, is out west too.

    What others are there that I don't have to cross town to visit?

    First off, I need a new soldering iron to replace the Weller whose 24V element
    has gone open. I'd prefer one with digital control and readout this time. Fine
    tips (and likelihood of long-term availability) for SMD work. Recommendations?

    Don't need much in the way of components yet, but an etch tank and an assortment
    of RF chip inductors is on the cards.

    ** ROTFL !!

    Wot a poon.


    ** Component grocery stores are a thing of the past - dickhead.

    RS and Farnell / Element 14 wiped them all out.


    ** Hakko.

    ** Element 14.

    Wot a retarded, bloody dinosaur.

  4. It will be interesting if I now get the opportunity to meet the man behind your unhinged persona.
    I'll know right away if they match, because your nose must surely have been broken a hundred times.
    But I suspect you're quite different in the flesh.

    I had decided on Hakko too - the FX888 looks reasonable - because WES has plenty of spares available.
    The ability to duck in to a local store to get something extra is important when trying to fit a hobby
    into a busy career. But you wouldn't know about that, would you Phil?

  5. Clifford, don't take what this low-life retarded tird rate toaster repairer
    says to heart. It's typical of the coward that he is - hides behind a
    keyboard with a big mouth. In person you will find he's a cowering
    meak-and-mild guttless fool that sits and fiddles with his dick all day, His
    comments and voice are to be likend to a lost fart in a thunderstorm.

    Phill is not a dill, and if you ignore his vituperative comments and he
    deigns to comment sensibly he can be quite helpful.

    If you look at his answers on other technical groups over the years, you
    may change your mind.

    No, Chatswood is not a major technology hub.
    Corner-shop component suppliers are pretty much extinct in Sydney.

    Chatswood used to be a hub of the IT industry, that has largely moved to
    North Ryde these days.
