Where to find the parts ?

A project log for SPDT16: 16-bits arithmetic unit with relays

Let's imagine I could get about 200 SPDT relays. Of course I would know what to do with them :-D But will 200 be enough ?

Since the project has been featured on this website, I have received questions, mostly concerning my sources for the parts.

The relays come from http://www.ebay.com/usr/alex550_2 in Ukraine. He's a very nice seller, who sometimes stuffed some empty space in the boxes with a few extras. He also sold me the 18KHz quartz resonators that are used in #Yet Another (Discrete) Clock. You can find him here too ! @qro_team

The miniature lamps come from eBay user minifux in Germany. Watch his items on the german site as many don't seem to appear anywhere else than http://www.ebay.de/sch/minifux1/m.html (He also has TONS of germanium parts that I use in #Clockwork germanium)

The DC/DC modules come from http://www.ebay.com/usr/exdwh

Yeah, eBay is pretty awesome :-)

Thank you guys !
