Electronics buffs - where do you buy 'Pots' ?

I need one of these (or the equivalent):

https://www.amplifiedparts.com/produ...mount-marshall

Cheap as chips online, but by the time you pay postage/have to wait a week until DHL finds the house I couldn't be @rsed.

Any real world supplier round Dubland I could go to ?

You need to travel back in time so you can visit Peats or Maplin.

Failing that, RS or Farnell will probably have what you need.
They tend to be expensive and you might not get it any
quicker than ordering direct from the UK.

Chip Electronics in Cork
Irish Electronics, also in Cork.

If you need it in a hurry, try your nearest Audio or PA specialist.

I get most components from eBay these days. Postage takes around
a month or even longer in February because of the Chinese new year.

Excellent stuff chaps :)

I'll try RS - handy enough to me, and I want somebody to check the old component, make sure the replacement is identical.

There is Farnell, but I don't think you can pop in to them - mail order only

Re: Electronics buffs - where do you buy 'Pots' ?

I have always use Farnell, next day delivery. They carry a huge range of items. Last thing I bought from them about 2 months ago were power rail Capacitors for a Samusng monitor. Ordered at 12noon delivered next day at 3pm. Much cheaper than Radioonics

See farnell are charging 4.90 handling fee used to be none. Fooking stick it they can. Argos don't charge to take off a shelf. .92c worth of caps is over 6 euro now.

Re: Electronics buffs - where do you buy 'Pots' ?

Farnell electronics are as good as you get with next day delivery if you order early in the morning

https://ie.farnell.com/

Hardest part is trying to wade through the vast amount of items they stock

Might need to look under Rheostats for the pots

Never saw this - sorry man.

I kind of parked the project for the moment - bought a decent s/h modern amp, and never yet got round to getting the soldering iron out to the little Marshall.

Thanks for the offer all the same - and indeed the advice from everybody else. Much appreciated
