Hey guys,

I've recently relocated to the UK and now I need to look for a electronic shop which sells the basic stuff like DMMs, resistors, LEDs, etc. etc. Anyone know of any?

Thanks.

hi thre i am in the uk. maplin is the main electronic chain in the uk, but from what i heard it is the same as radio shak overpriced so i aviod there if i can. the place i like to go is RS they are usualy cheaper, resistors you can get 10 times as many for the same price compared to maplin. here is there site. uk.rs-online.com/web/home.html thoguh to buy from them you need to be a business though they are usualy quite relaxed - I am only 15 and i buy through my parents company that is a musical duo (* yes ill have a 10 pack of transistors please for the ermm ... keyboard*) but they will help you find a loop hole so you can buy from them.
