More good sources of electronic parts are Allied & Newark. Both are easy to find online & they have almost all common parts in stock.

McMaster Carr has many types of mechanical parts, tools, & supplies.

https://www.thomasnet.com/    Thomas Register is a valuable resource for finding parts of all sorts ... plus so much more.
