    I'm not sure I would want to try to buy anything in production quantities from any of the suppliers listed below, but they have a good smattering of strange and unusual bits and pieces.


    Circuit Specialists: Also known as Web-Tronics. A good collection of test equipment and tools, both name brand and some very affordable Chinese stuff.


    Marlin P. Jones Associates: Inexpensive test equipment and tools, plus closeout components at good prices.
    BEWARE: As of 2012 they have gotten in the bad habit of making untrue claims about their products. If it seems to good to be true, it probably is.


    All Electronics: Mostly closeouts and one-time buys. Good selection of unusual parts.


    HSC Electronic Supply; Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, it's hard to define this one. they may not have a lot in the way of components, but they carry a constantly changing assortment of high tech stuff. Much of it is surplus from recently defunct dot-coms.


    American Science & Surplus: A very quirky source of odd bits and pieces. If you don't need it, they're sure to have it in stock!
