I can't find the parts to build a robot
« on: February 21, 2009, 09:32:03 AM »
Hi everyone. I'm trying to build my first robot, so I have read some of the tutorials in this site. They were very helpfull and I think that I understood how to build a robot. The problem is that I live in Brazil and I couldn't find the parts that I needed here. Does anyone knows a site that ships all over the world? Thanks for reading.

^^None of those are for Brazil

Mouser ships to Brazil, not sure about shipping costs, though.

For Thailand its $40 shipping plus 20% for customs. Basically I don't buy from Mouser while abroad. I can't buy local because the technology here is 5-10 years behind, and I assume you have the same problem . . .

Tell us specifically what you are looking for and we can help if you can't find it.
