Amp kit missing part.

Post by Martin1970 » Wed Sep 21, 2011 9:51 am

Digikey's shipping is kinda crazy on some of these tiny parts that are less than $1.
Any chance I can get something dropped in an envelope and sent out?
I'm not sure who to contact about this. Alex maybe?

Almost every kit was missing at least one part; the one I built was missing 4 parts. I was going to check Radio Shack locally first...

Well, I was just thinking that I'd rather pay Alex 2 dollars for 5 min of his time to walk to the mailbox than $10 for Digikey to put something the size of my thumbnail in a box.
And, of course, the part Radio Shack stocks is inferior and overpriced, as usual. :rolleyes:

Martin,
Try these guys if no other way- you may fare better for shipping anyways. Grab s'more tubes also! You will probably need them sooner than later- I had one run away soon as I powered it on at home- waiting on new tubes to arrive to play it...
