Would any gadeteers in Seattle/Redmond beable to suggest good sources of components? I have tried a futerlec but I have not been overly impressed with the time to deliver!

Hi Graham,

Are you looking for Gadgeteer modules or for general electronic components? For Gadgeteer hardware, ordering from the manufacturer is generally fastest.  If you're looking for general electronics, here are a few that I'm familiar with:

Vetco on Northup Way in Bellevue has a large selection of electronic components and connectors.

Radio Shack has a small selection of basic parts.  They're in Redmond, Bellevue, downtown Seattle and West Seattle, so it's convenient to a lot of areas.

For online ordering in Seattle, Jameco is pretty fast.  My last order came the day after I ordered it.

There are almost certainly more stores, but these are the ones I've shopped at recently.
