Shrimping with TaydaCefn Hoyle's Shrimping It! website offers excellent value for people who want to build the Shrimp low-cost Arduino clone. I got the supplies for the Spa Shrimping session from my usual UK suppliers, but it would have been cheaper to get them from Cefn.
The Shrimping It! site also tells you about Tayda Electronics. That's the company from whom the Makers of Morecambe buy supplies.
I decided to try Tayda and placed a small order a few days ago.
Fast deliveryThe Tayda website is clean, fast-loading and easy to navigate.

I need not have worried. My order arrived within a week. That's fine when I am buying the parts for a workshop. The savings make the slight delay worthwhile.
One component I ordered was a 28-pin 0.3" width Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) socket. This cost $1.39. Most UK vendors don't stock them, and most of those those that do charge £2.50 or more.
ConclusionIf you need reliable and inexpensive components, and can wait a few days, take a look at Tayda.
