    Can't remember where I got mine, but 1N34As are readily available in small quantities at reasonable prices. I've bought several batches of 10 or so in the last couple of years.

    Maybe the crystal set guy?

    These are also the kinds of things I tag on the top of other orders from Mouser - just to build up the parts bins without shipping costs. Sort of like "earmarks". :)

    That does look like a good vendor with good prices - did I read the shipping charges correct - $4 to the USA??? If so, then I'll be ordering some things from them.

    Yes, you read it correctly.

    I have found Futurlec very good.

    Really? My local Radio Shack stores actually stock that part -- you have to look through the "parts drawers".
    Don't ask the store's "cell phone staff" -- they are largely clueless in science, electronics or anything useful.

    I usually keep 10 or so in my home parts bin.

    Easily acquired through Mouser, and you can have in mailbox a couple of days later. I just ordered 100 of the current replacements for the 1N270.

    Thanks again for the link - I just placed an order with them - for $4 total shipping/handling charges, they promise to have it delivered in a week.... Their prices seem better than Mouser - not as much inventory, but do seem to be a bit less, and funny, but shipping is less from half way 'round the world than from TX.

    Perhaps I should have actually went to RS - I just checked the on-line catalog. There were several general purpose diodes listed, but NO 1N34 diodes - perhaps the local RS might have them. I just didn't think to check after 1N34 was not even listed on-line.

    Thanks to all,

    Just a warning with Futurlec. There shipping can be very slow. If parts are back-ordered they will often delay your entire order waiting for the back-ordered parts. They also are terrible communicators. Basically, if you need stuff sometime in the future from a week to a few months, they are ok to deal with and have good prices.
