If we knew your location we might be able to help, otherwise find some old stuff, rip it apart and de-solder all the components, this is a good way to get components for FREE.

Thanks Ziggy for the reply, am in New York. I already have a few components ripped off from old circuit boards but it's hard finding my precise wanted components and values especially Ics and transistors or LEDs.I would greatly appreciate any help.

RadioShack have a few but the best source is E-Bay there are often lots for sale from businesses closing etc.

ebay is good, but be careful when buying capacitors as they often say 10mF meaning ten milli Farad when they mean 10 micro Farad 10uF, always read the markings on the pictures.
