DIY Parts Locator and Useful Links

As a Modular DIY enthusiast, we know how hard it is to outsource parts and components. Sometimes you can spend hours upon hours scouring the internet looking for one little diode or transistor to complete your BOM (Bill of Materials).

We were tired of having to go back and forth trying to easily locate the DIY parts we needed, so we have put together a list of links that will help you find what you are looking for. If you are a supplier or a DIY parts dealer and would like to be listed on this directory, please feel free to contact us

(Make sure to bookmark this page, as this list will be ever revolving and updated).
