'[OT]: Source for SMT Caps small qtys'

Just wondering if anyone knows of a place I can get small quantities of SMT
capacitors to
deal with a "HoneyDo" project.

I think the total is all of about 80 count of various ratings and sizes.  I
don't know anyone here that
is using smt ad ordering through the usual suspects  will cost a few times
more in shipping than the caps
will.

If anyone knows where to get small quantities please let me know. I'm
located in BC Canada.

Thanks.

Dave

Hmm, if you're willing to import, there are a couple of places in
Australia and in the UK but that would depend on the exchange rate.

Have you tried Digikey in the US?

Everytime I wanted to order, I found them from my heap of defective printer,
harddisk, power-supply, etc.  Save me quite some money and more importantly
time when retrieving them from these "hot-spares".

Cheers, Ling SM

Dave,

Go to http://www.digikey.ca  Order them by 5, have them by Purolator next-day
for $8 cdn shipping.  Expect to pay a bit more for the parts.  I use
them all the time for prototyping, as I get lots of whining from the
usual channels when buying only a couple of something.  This even works
in Kamloops!

for $1.00  - 100 for $8.00  the 2.2pF to 680pF are half that price.
they also have lotsa other surf mount stuff.

Combo of answers....

I might have to order from Digikey. Seems to be the best way. I had a look
at ebay and the selections weren't what I needed and the one that was even
close was hitting $30US. I think the total from Digikey was all of $4.

As far as getting them from used boards etc, seems to be a couple of problems
I can think of. One is just telling what is what (getting old can't see
;-]), and the
other is if they would survive being heated 3 times (soldered, de-soldered,
re-soldered)
Are the smt electrolytic's sensitive or pretty tolerant?

Even in Kamloops? Wow I thought I was in the boonies for stuff in Kelowna ;-]
Actually I had something from NEC (Phoenix) show up last week overnight.
Would have bet against that between 911, and the customs strike against it
happening.

Thanks everyone!

Dave

They don't like heat, i've had to replace a
lot of defective ones in older equipment. They
give off a "fishy" stink when unsoldered, and
ESR testing shows they are VERY BAD with ESR.
Not all stink, but all that are exposed to hot
working conditions risk this fault.

As a minimum, test "recovered" parts for ESR before
keeping them.
