Sometimes you need lab or other hardware supplies that the workshop may only provide with significant effort or delays, so you may want to check out local suppliers directly. This page provides an incomplete list of various sources people in the department have tried, with no special endorsement by the workshop. Please add your favourite store here if you don't find it yet.

If you know about a good shop for something, please enter it in this list. If you had a particular good or bad experience with one of them, leave a short comment in this list.
