I'm going to buy some things for back to the electronic world.
Starting with an Resistor Assorted Kit. Need to buy some kits containing the most common capacitors and transistors... what to buy???
[I want to buy to create a lot of things that there is schematic on the web without having to buy new components]
Inward merge from duplicate question, now closed; Summary for reference:
Electronics for everyday inventor
... capacitors, trimmers, resistors, pots, diodes, transisters, leds and laser diodes, timers (like the 555), inductors, ICs and common microchips, LOTS of sensors (temperature, gasses, radiation, light, sound, motion etc) and sensor like pieces (like selenium chips), and a bunch of other things ... for the chaotic inventor.
