    Default Where can I buy Nintendo 72 pin connectors in Bulk?

    I need to buy a bunch and I'd rather not pay through the pooper. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance for your help.

    MCM Electronics is the only place I'm aware of.

    and the only "bulk" discount from them is they don't raise the shipping if you buy a lot. meaning 1 pin = $20bux shipping to canada 20 pins= 20bux shipping to canada

    some discount.

    I do repairs for stores and fleas around here. I make squat on the pins, but I do make a few bux on putting them into the NES's. Being the only guy with the pins in town, it works out OK. Not a lot of money in doing pins, but it helps me be the "go to" guy for the local stores.

    Every business needs a loss leader, and that's mine. I justify the small coin profit, by getting VERY fast at the pin switch procedure. 8 minutes is my record so far...

    MCM is a ripoff. I need an electronics company that is on the level. Someone must know. Please tell me.

    omnedon,
    If I buy a hundred at bulk discount ($2?), did you want some? At cost of course.

    As I said, if you find them available ANYWHERE else for cheaper than MCM Electronics, feel free to let me know

    Am I reading Mikebossey's post correctly. Sounds like he has worked a deal out where he can buy 72 pin connectors in bulk.

    I'm up for it MikeBossy! I'd bet we could make the deal sweeter if we worked with Sylentwulf too. More is better, and an overall reduction on shipping. I'm easy into 50 units minimum at 2 bux per pop plus ship.

    One of my friends is an electronics buyer, and he is working his connections, he mentioned the $2 ballpark, and he is extremely knowledgable. If it's out there he will get me the best deal. I will keep the board posted, I have heard there are different quality replacement connectors too, which are better?

    At $2 I'm good for a couple hundred at least.
