    Please forgive me I'm a novice. Up until now I have bought parts for the project I want to build, and nothing more, and I think it's about time I started a sort of "Personal Stock" of parts. What I mean is, I want to buy a bulk amount of some components that are popular among circuits so I don't have to go keep buying them individualy for each circuit. What I am looking for is somebody to recommend parts that I (a novice) would use frequently. I hope this helps me not have to go buy a separate package of components everytime I build something. Any help would be appreciated, bear in mind though, that I already have a large assortment of resistors and capacitors, but any suggestion on transistors, IC's, diodes, and anything else popular would help.

    Thanks,

    Hi,
    I would suggest you following most commonly used parts.
    Transistors
    BC547 - Small Signal NPN
    BC557 - Small Signal PNP
    BD139 - Power NPN
    BD140 - Power PNP

    Analog ICs
    LM741 - Gerenal Purpose Op-amp
    LM555 - Timer IC

    digital ICs
    7404 - Hex inverter
    7408 - AND Gates
    7432 - OR Gates
    7486 - XOR gates
    7400 - NAND Gates
    7402 - NOR Gates

    Diodes
    1N4007 - Gerenal Purpose 1A Rectifier Diode
    1N4148 - Switching diode

    These are sufficient to build any simple circuit. Please someone add to the list if I am missing something.

    hey, bu dont forget the resistors and capacitors, they are very important 2
    didnt it happen to u to have the main partes, the ic, transistors, but not to have a resistor, or a capacitor?

    He has already mentioned that he has many capacitors and resistors. So I didn't listed them. If someone wants the list here it is
    Resistors (1/4 W)
    100 Ohms
    220 Ohms
    470 Ohms
    1k
    10k
    100k
    1M (Not used very often)
    A few 10k, 100k, 470k and 1M potentiometers

    Capacitors (Cermaic and Electrolytic)
    33pF (Mainly for 8051 Microcontroller)
    22pF (For PIC uC's)
    0.01uF (Power supply decoupling)
    0.1uF (Power supply decoupling)
    1000uF (Power Supplies)
