Do Farnell sell any worthwhile CB related stuff ?

Post by cb4ever104 » 02 May 2018, 13:11

I'm just buying some electrolytics and some transistors from Farnell . I'm still about a £10 short of the £20 minimum .

Is anyone else using them to buy CB related spares , or test equipment ? If so what are you buying ?

How about fuses, or the molex connectors to make up Lincoln power cables.

That could be a nice little earner...

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.

Think we talked about that a while ago Simon . Didn't we ? What's his name "watchshop" sells them for £9 all in , including the postage . Don't think there's much money to be made there . Saying that I'll have a look . Have you got the part numbers ?

Buy some Bergquist silcone pads to replace the gooey/messy mica insulator installations. That will get you over the hump.
