    Vendors with print catalogs?

    Are their any diy electronics/ audio vendors with print catalogs anymore?
    I get Parts Express only now. I used to get Mousers. I have not checked to see if they still have them.I don't think Madisound prints anymore.
    I like real catalogs. It's too burdensome to drag the desktop & monitor to the crapper.
    Thanks for any tips!

    Mouser still does I think Brad. It's been a couple years since I got one...

    I get MSC catalogs every year & they must be six inches thick. Madisounds 2008 catalog I'm looking at now would not cost all that much, considering the return I'd think.
    Of course I still have my stack of Lafayette & Radio Shack cats from the sixties.......... I WILL NOT SUBMIT! And I still say that Cathode Ray tube T.V.'s had better pictures than LCD's!

    I too miss catalogs...... Little do the vendors realize is that many of us would spend many more dollars on things we thought we needed. These days I just order only what is on the list, no extras.....


    I still hang onto the Mouser, Digikey, and McMaster catalogs as they are my only hope in finding what I need. The on-line catalogs are nice if one knows exactly what you want, if you are just searching for something that might work for a project on-line is hopeless.

    Have a great 4th!

    My thoughts exactly Robert, not knowing exactly what you need is easier if you can browse the pages with pics!!
