Exhibit Building Supplies

When your obvious resources like Home Depot and the local hardware store let you down, try some of these resources used by professional scientists too!


Mcmaster Carr: A legendary USA orgininal, used as a source of parts by inventors everywhere!

Amazon Industrial and Scientific: Amazon has been buying up industrial suppliers.  Easy shipping and a familiar user interface.

Digikey: An amazing resource for electronics components.

American Science and Surplus: A favorite for cool things cheap.


Some of the suppliers have local outlets you can actually visit:

All electronics in the San Fernando Valley is fun to visit for various motors and switches.

C&H surplus in Duarte truly has a very impressive collection as well.


In the image below, from the Disney movie Big Hero Six, can you spy something related to one of the above suppliers?
