Ordering a bit more stuff from the States/Canada and not China.

It's hard not to, but this is the way I did it before all the cheap Chinese components were available. I also order a lot less now since I have sorted out most of my "collection".

 

I needed a new brass solder tip cleaner, the current one is over 10 years old.  Nasty - maybe not the real word for it. I looked on Amazon, then got the thinking that it has been a while since I ordered from Marlin P. Jones. So I headed to the Welsh American's web site 😉 and found the cleaner and a few more items.

The cleaner is not pictured, but I found some Nema 23 steppers that screamed robotics to me, a 5v fan, and really nice snap-switches with no lever or place for it (perfect for what I want them for). 

The Steppers are on closeout for 3.95$ each, the switches are .15c each and the fans .95c

Marlin P. is kind of hit and miss on items and prices, but there is always something good on sale I suppose.

They are so cheap, I had to get a few.  Bad me, bad me.
