Vactrols & switch caps for Buchla builds

Post by Votek_Mendo » Thu Mar 26, 2020 1:48 pm

Hi Guys
I'm trying to build a few modules that i had panels , pcbs and parts for and i'm missing some VActrols for a 292c. Parts are hard to get these days because of the corona situation.

Is there anyone willing to sell me a few Vactrols for a 292c?
I need at least 4 x VTL5C3/2 to complete my 292c and need some more for a 266 too.
Please, PLEASSSSSSSSSE!!!

Or maybe you guys know a place that still ship and have vactrols for sale?

Also where is a good place to buy all those switch caps at a good price?

I'm located in Montreal Canada.

THx a lot!

FYI- smallbear is currently only shipping existing orders and not new ones. So if you need them like NOW NOW, you'll have to go somewhere else.

Thanks for the infos, really appreciated!
I have sent emails to see if they are still shipping

No one has 2 to 4 vactrols they can sell to me?

don’t know if you need a specific vactrol but NLC is suggesting for his builds you just roll your own out of an LDR and an LED.
