The way I found this site is I was looking for resistors in Macon Ga and I caught a a six year old discussion on where to buy such items .the. Only answer most came up with was Radio shack . Well they are history now , any ideas ? Specifically I need a 37k ohms 1/8 volt resistor to repair a car ac system but not a standard car part thanks

37k 1/8 watt resistor? (I don't think 1/8 volt resistors exist)

This one will do:

Shipping should be about $4 for USPS first class mail. The resistor is 67 cents

A higher watt rating should be fine too. 1/4 watt resistors are the most common.

There are still some local small electronics part suppliers around in many areas. Finding them is the tricky part. Microcenter has quiet a bit of hobby electronics, they might sell a resistor kit with with a few hundred resistors of different sizes.

You should also check what tolerance (5%, 1%, ...) you need.
