Components

Supplier Free Shipping? Notes
Bitsbox No - £1.50 Regardless of order size though. They have every component you could want, normally always in stock, at a cheap price, with good delivery times.
Futurlec No Good supplier, very cheap SMD to DIP converter's which are useful for prototyping.
RS Components No Not always the cheapest, but you can collect from a trade counter.
Farnell Yes Larger selection than RS and free shipping, however there is a minimum order to qualify.
Digikey Yes Even larger selection than Farnell and free shipping on orders over £50.
eBay Varies Always a good place to start, direct access to Chinese sellers without the risk.

Tools

Circuit Specialists - Soldering equipment, blackjack range is very good for the price.

Wholesale Chinese Suppliers

IC2IC - Good for large orders, also able to find discontinued components.


Hardware

Supplier Free Shipping? Notes
Butler Fasteners and Fixings n/a Excellent supplier. Small place, piled high with boxes of every obscure nut and bolt you can think of. Incredibly helpful in tracking down things to fit other things.


Bicycle tools and parts

Supplier Free Shipping? Notes
J E James Cycles Yes Bad supplier, website lists things as in stock when they're not.


Key Cutting and Engraving

Supplier Free Shipping? Notes
Quick Services n/a Best place we've found to have hackspace keys cut. Generally have the right blanks in stock, reasonable prices.
