In Stock: Items in our catalog listed as "In Stock" means we have the stuff ready to ship. Orders are normally sent around 5PM EST each day.

Out of Local Stock: We normally stock these items but have run out. New stock will be available soon, typically in a week or so.

Order As Required: These items are not held in stock but can be ordered anyway and we will get them as quickly as possible from our suppliers. This enables you to order a wider range of parts with lower shipping cost and local Australian returns if needed.

Discontinued: These items are no longer for sale. Check the product details page for details of a replacement product.

Stock Levels

The stock levels on our web site  are updated as orders are taken but sometimes we will be out of stock on an item you have ordered as we can not guarantee our stock levels are 100% accurate at all times due to factors such as bad counting or damaged stock. If one or more of the items your ordered are out of stock then we will first contact you for instructions on how or if you would like to proceed. Naturally your order would be at the front of the queue when new stock arrives.


If an item in your cart is out of stock or a special order, you will be notified that the item is on backorder before you begin the checkout process.

We ship backordered items as soon as possible, typically in 5-7 working days. If you are concerned about how long it will take for a backordered item to become available, please contact us.

Split Shipping

You have two options for how to handle the shipment of your backorders:

  • Two shipments: All available items will ship now; all backordered items will ship later.
  • One shipment: Your order will be held until all items are available.


If you ordered the wrong thing we will accept returns of new, un-opened items in their original packaging within 30 days of the order date provided they are in saleable condition. We think it is better that you spend your money on the things you do want, hopefully with us next time.

Please note we can only accept returns of returns of electronics kits under some circumstances.

It does take us a while to process a return order, check it and restock it so a $5 + 15% restocking fee applies and you pay the return shipping. Only the price of the goods less the restocking fee is refundable. The initial shipping charge is not refundable. Please contact us to obtain a return authorization code before making a return.


Please contact us as soon as possible if you would like to cancel or change your order. You can cancel an order free of charge if we receive your cancellation request before your order is processed and we start creating a bubble wrap and cardboard safety capsule for your goodies. Please be quick though as we try and get goods sent asap.
