You may not save money, but you might find that component that you need to finish a project.

I have been stuck with all the parts for a Class A audio project - the darned power transformer. These guys have them!!!

And they have a heck of a lot more.

Well, you're right Loopy. They even have the reclusive LM3909. For $13! http://www.electronicplus.com/search-return.asp?search=lm3909&Submit=Search

I bought 4 from Ebay China for $2 each: http://www.ebay.com/itm/250881986100 They arrived, but I have not tested them yet. That's a post-Christmas task.

Rather an absurd device when you can build a flip-flop with two transistors or fets and do just as well for even less money. But I suppose there are those that must have all and everything in a DIP package, just for the sake of tidyness.
