I haven't been to either in a good few years, but Jaycar was veering off completely into the toys and tat that dick smith transitioned to last time I went in, but from what a friend has told me, they are actually back on track with electronic components and they can actually order stuff in in a timely manner if a store doesn't have a particulat part. which is what you want.

I will be going to jaycar soon because I want to wire some lights for my slot cars, both Altronics stores in Melbourne are no where near me (40 minutes) but I have 3 Jaycars within 20 minutes.
Well the good news is a Jaycar has opened where the old blinds shop was. So now the only stores closer to me than Jaycar are 711 and Bob Jane T-marts.
Shame to see the blinds store go. Along with the sandwich shop down the road they were the oldest remaining shop in the area.

but now I can easily and quickly do random projects!
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

In the last few weeks I've gotten a soldering iron, another USB encoder, and a bunch of other random crap from Jaycar. I just keep buying random shit :olol:
