This is the best news ever, Amazon now has a industrial & scientifc (beta) section – They have metals, plastic, mechanical components, fasteners, wire, springs and of course tools. I’m going to see if I can make a complete project with just is available on the new section and save the list of parts/tools as a “wish list” or something shareable. Then anyone could read the how-to and hit buy it now. Also, it might be fun to make a SketchUp library with all the parts/materials from Amazon Industrial & Scientific and have an easy way for folk to get all the things they need for a project. Amazon gift certificates just got a lot more valuable, hopefully Digikey will do gift certificates soon too, or just sell through Amazon… [via] Link.
