Hi

I need a handholding. I can't seem to track down anywhere to buy suitable tempcos/thermisters. I'm looking for 1k or 2k PTC for log converter/amp applications and... Embarassed I don't know what to ask for!

Based in the UK I can buy from Rapid, RS, CPC/Farnell or Mouser uk, but when I look for what I think I want - say 2K PTC +3300ppm/c thermister - I'm left with a list that is boggling and doesn't seem to match the criteria I typed in. Discs? Temperature probes? 10mm leads? How do I epoxy that to my trannie pair?!?

So, basically, what are other guys and galls buying for this purpose and where can I get some? Is there a secret website? A certain door? See a bloke about a dog? Or another wearing a red carnation and a "Kiss me quick" hat? 'Cause I will... Shocked

Hope some kind soul will help out a Bear in need,

Da Bear

Hi Bear -

I think Precision Resistor is one of the few manufacturers of those.

Personally, I go to Scott Deyo at www.bridechamber.com for them. Look under his "Hard to find parts" section...

Oh Paul, thou arn't no knave sirrah but may kestrels attend to your bed!

Do you get it? Eh, eh?

That's brilliant! Thank you. I think I just didn't really know what tolook for. And £1.10 a pop is a lot better than £5 a time.

Thanks a million

Da Bear Jim

And thanks Gary! Though Bridechamber are a bit too expensive for me.

As it is I'm going to have to negotiate with my equivalent of "'er indoors" to spend more money on my hobby!
