Hi @will,

  For me, I get a large white blank rectangle with 'Free preview' link at the bottom. Pressing this link gives the Kindle note I posted. This is with Win 10 laptop and Firefox, so where Kindle came from, I have no idea.

Best wishes.

oooo ... nasty !

Here's the literal URL, maybe you can copy it from out of the quotes ...

"https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Y1ZRPVH?ref_=k4w_embed_dp_err&tag=kpembed-20"

To clarify, your post initially shows as:

Clicking 'Free Preview' changes it to :

Yes, I understood that from your previous post, but I don't know why the URL failed. I'm hoping that the URL embedded in quotes is usable.

@will I've noticed the Kindle same thing when folks post Amazon images on the forum, I'm also at a loss to explain it (which is pretty sad, as I'm the one who set it up in the first place).

In my case I saw the image when it was first posted. But then I clicked "Free Preview" and got the same "Kindle" screen, and I couldn't return to the image because the tab was no longer there. But after I refreshed my browser, the image returned.

This is with Ubuntu 20.04 and Chrome.

@dronebot-workshop 

Were you able to access the Amazon item from the later post with the quote-surrounded URL ?

I'm using a Mac using Safari, but that's probably not germane since it was my post and it makes sense that I can still read it. It does NOT make sense that nobody else can however 🙁

It seems to be inconsistent as I believe that you were able to access the previous link to an Amazon product (tag strips) ?

And to round off the nostalgia fest ... also from the supplier @codecage referenced ... if you have lots of (wire-ended, of course) passives, usually resistors and capacitors, to mount and wire ..

NB This one the supplier lists as tagboard, whilst the single row as terminal board. I don't recall that difference, but it was long time ago.

Does anyone have a source for "tag strips" these days?

Try this link Bill.  I think these may get you on the right track.

Terminal strips

That's EXACTLY what I wanted, and I note that they are indeed referred to as terminal strips on that page.

I'd never heard of "Antique Electronics", looks like they have a lot of components I haven't seen in decades. A lot of stuff for musicians, which makes sense as many still prefer tube equipment.

And they ship to Canada (and worldwide) too! I'll have to place an order.

Thanks Steve!!

Bill, I don't know if you know about this company, or if they would be of any use to you. But I recently discovered Next Gen Guitars in Ottawa - https://nextgenguitars.ca/

Always good to find another Canadian distributor, thanks for the link!

Interestingly, I had someone asking just yesterday about parts for guitar amps. I had a couple of plumbers in to do some work in the basement, and they were checking out my workshop. One of them asked if I repaired guitar amps (which I don't), he probably could have used that link!
