you dont have any hobby stores around your area? No general electronics stores? Ask friends, neighbors, relatives, etc if they know of any kind of stores like that... or if your close to the US border, come over here and go to Radioshack and get them :P

got any useless electronics sitting around? Open em up and see what kind of things you can scrap from them. Im sure youll find what your looking for relatively quickly

Ummm anything with motors or servos would be a good thing to start off with. Also anything that keeps time would be good to look through... ummmm I think things like remotes and such that output a frequency of some sort should have some...

any electronics should have capacitors in them.

google image search capacitors to see what all the diferent types look like

i looked around and found this do you theink i can replace it with the 0.01uf capacitor

http://www.thesourcecc.com/estore/Product.aspx?language=en-CA&catalog=Online&category=Capacitors&product=2729013

also is there that big of a difference between the 2N3904 Transistor and the 2N3906 Transistor

Those are all have way too much capacity to be a successful substitution. Just scavenge one from an old radio or something.

The first transistor is NPN the second is PNP. You can't substitute one for the other.

are any of these good

I suspect that if you want a .01uF, you are wanting a ceramic type not an electrolytic type (use wikipedia to learn more).

As everyone said, it should be really really easy to find this capacitor in scrapped electronics.

It will look like this and say 103:

thanks a lot guys i will check in the morning

any idea about my other question
is there that big of a difference between the 2N3904 Transistor and the 2N3906 Transistor

3904 is an NPN and the 3906 is a PNP
They are different types of BJT transistors and can not be used interchangeably

okay so i googled th two transivers and they look th same but i know there not, is there any writing on them that i should look for to tell them apart?

this is the link to the 2N3906 transiver

look for them at datasheetcatalog website for usage instructions. They are both the same ratings but the usage is totally different for them.

what writing?

Look for the exact capacitor you need wit whatever number you need on it ( e.g. 103)

you mean transistors not trancievers ( they are totally different)

they also have numbers on back


that one is a 222A transistor( look at the numbers on it)


What I would do is gather all the transistors and then look them up to see which transistor has the same function and is the same type as the transistor that I need.

For example a  1234 can work the same as a 5678  and be used interchangeably but a 1234 and a 2222 cannot be used interchangeably. Just look at the datasheets of the transistor you want and the transistor you found. And then just match em up!
