  1. I'm going to build a very basic ultrasonic cleaning tank based on a
    555 and using a piezoelectric tweeter (which I will probably have to
    waterproof somehow).

    I live in San Diego, CA, and welcome any suggestions for a reliable
    parts supplier, either local or on the Web.

    Anybody 'less expensive' than Radio Shack? (I read an NG comment that
    they have such tweeters for around $5, but have found piezo tweeters
    for about $3.80 on the net and, since I am temporarily on disability [
    get this: black widow spider bite, siezure, dislocated shoulder, two
    operations! <G> ], cost is a concern.

    ps. if there is an FAQ that you think I might find useful, please let
    me know.

    Try to order all your parts at once, so you have at least a $25.00 order.
    (They charge an additional $5.00, I think, for orders <$25.00.)
  3. Everybody is less expensive than Radio Shack :)

    For wide selection:

    For low prices and surplus:
    All Electronics Corp.
    Halted Specialties
    And numerous others that advertise in the magazine Nuts & Volts.

    A late reply, but if you find yourself in a bind and need something local,
    you might try Gateway Electronics east of Clairemont Mesa off of Ruffin
