CPC: Sister company to Farnell. Good for tools, general electrical and hobby electronics. Again, some items might be cheaper elsewhere.

Bitsbox: Basic (traditional) components for hobbyists. Low delivery charges and good service.

Proto-PIC: Scottish company selling hobby electronics, robotics, kits, etc. Discount available for members.

Phenoptix: UK-based hobby electronics. Quick delivery with a low-minimum order value. No longer selling parts! Shame
