    As you can see I'm planning on buying it all from eBay. I know some of you will disagree with me, however, I just dont have a site to buy from!
    Can anyone point me in the right direction so I can get the parts cheaper? Also just to deal with the fact that all my parts won't be shipping from different parts of the country, with the risk of the parts coming in broken or having the wrong item received.


    Please Help! =]

    Yeah... your strategy is alright. You could probably pick any of your eBay sellers and get everything from one vendor. Might be simpler. Watch out for Hong Kong though, this could take some time and hold up your projects.

    Also, keep in mind that internal switches and external buttons are separate. If the button is physically broken, it must be replaced. If it is just a malfunctioning internal switch, you may be able to re-use the external button.
