List of good online shops for bot parts

I was wondering where online most of you go to shop for parts? Can we construct a master list of important websites here?

This list is from the URLs I've gathered from the various tutorials:

Did I miss any? Should this be added to a wiki page with categorization?

It would also been good to have a link on the component pages to where you can order the parts that are described.

www.jaycar.com.au

www.ledsales.com.au

www.oatleyelectronics.com/

www.futurlec.com 

 There are more, but way too expensive, buy from techsupplies or the US.

I would also add in

www.altronics.com.au

 similar prices to Jaycar and stock Picaxe chips, although much cheaper to order  the picaxe chips from UK and wait a week or two.

Futurlec has really nice and cheap microcontroller boards, such as this one:

http://www.futurlec.com/ATMEGA_Controller.shtml 

I bought from techsupplies almost all my sensors & boards; I easily find motors & arduino in Italy.

No one can add more (good) online shop in europe?

 

how about http://www.jameco.com ..I've used them for ICs and such but they have lots of stuff, kinda hard to find what you need though. Or http://www.robotmarketplace.com they have alot of battlebot stuff
it would be really great if you'd use the "link.png Web link Add a good web shop, a guide or a cool link" from the frontpage, to keep some order.

I dont know about you but i was able to get a good deal on a Boe Bot from. http://www.kitsusa.net/phpstore/index.php 

Tell me if you think this place has promise.

You are what you make of yourself.

Uh - it would be really great if you'd use the "link.png Web link Add a good web shop, a guide or a cool link" from the frontpage, to keep some order.

If some functions are missing or wanted in that system, please tell it to.. erh.. someone with more time than me ;) Or tell me, but please allow me a little time before fixing.

Also, please read the "best practice" from the frontpage, regarding components etc..

Thanks,

Sorry for being a noob but this is something I did not see [I must have missed it]. Uh..where would I find all of these cool links that everyone has added? [I did look, but wife swears that I am blind]
