I usually cruise All Electronics, BG Micro, and a couple of other
places twice a year for various projects, along with showing up to
hamfests with shopping lists.  The Dayton Hamvention is coming up, but
there are fewer and fewer components and C= machines every year.  I
used to be able to reliably find inexpensive DIN-4 connectors (1581
PSU, etc.), but even those are harder to find inexpensively anymore.
