I know it's too much to ask for, but still...
Do any of you order stuff from Digikey USA regularly? If so, would you be so kind as to add a couple of these connectors
to your order and send them back to me? I need them for something I'm working on, and I can't find them anywhere else (*). I'd pay for everything, of course.
The thing is, I'm going to order *a ton* of things for several projects
on Digikey Europe (so that I qualify for free shipping), but those pesky connectors are sold in the US site only. If I were to order everything there, I'd have to pay import taxes, and if I ordered the connectors only, I'd have to pay taxes *and* shipping. In any case, that's money that could've been used to pay for the stuff.
You may have noticed already, but I'm chronically short of money at the moment
If someone agreed to go through all the hassle and send the connectors to me, I really wouldn't know how to repay the favor, but I'm sure we could work something out. You'd have my eternal gratitude, that's for sure
(*) Mouser do have them
, but they don't have all the parts I need (namely, this FPGA
). I'm mostly building other people's schematics, so I'd rather not use different parts until I have some boards working.
