I've just moved from Melbourne, where I knew a number of good local suppliers, to Roseville (near Chatswood) in Sydney's north, and I'm stumped for suppliers. This has to be wrong, isn't Chatswood a major technology hub?
There's Jaycar in Greenwich, that's the best I've found. Altronics is down in Auburn on Parramatta Rd, WES in Liverpool Rd Ashfield, DSE doesn't count (hasn't for years). RS, if you wanted to walk in, is out west too.
What others are there that I don't have to cross town to visit?
First off, I need a new soldering iron to replace the Weller whose 24V element has gone open. I'd prefer one with digital control and readout this time. Fine tips (and likelihood of long-term availability) for SMD work. Recommendations?
Don't need much in the way of components yet, but an etch tank and an assortment of RF chip inductors is on the cards.
