      I agree. My collection of thousands of components isn't worth cataloging and
      putting prices on. Besides, someone will eventually say "you're asking 25 cents
      for this part but I can but it at XXX for 24 cents."

      However, if someone posts a note like "I need a XXXXX, does anyone have one?"
      I can usually find it in my collection. I've also had cases where someone said
      what they were looking for, and myself and others were able to suggest more
      suitable alternatives. This couldn't have happened if the person simply looked
      for the exact part on a website.

      Just post what you want and hopefully someone can provide it.

      Bob
