Hidden Gem: Wayne Electronics

I just wanted to share a little secret with our readers. There is this great electronics shop in Northern NJ, It’s called Wayne Electronics. No, it isn’t in Wayne, but rather up rt. 23 a bit in the town of Pompton Plains. They have been in business for 30 years and are willing to share their knowledge of electronics. This isn’t an advertisement, I just thought it would be a great resource for all the Makers in NJ.


They carry so many items for the electronics enthusiast, even supplies for etching your own PCB’s. There is a lot more stuff hidden in the back too, just ask.


If you are new to electronics, try one of the many Velleman kits in stock.


Sure, you can order parts from the Internet, but can you ask a question about the part? What about advice on a circuit you plan on building?


If you happen to be in NJ and check out Wayne Electronics, make sure you tell them you read about it on MAKE….and tell Patrick I said “Hi”.
