Announcing Our New mklec mk-vb26 Veroboards

We’re excited to announce a new product we now carry: the mklec mk-vb26 veroboard.  We had these manufactured based on our specs and they look awesome.  Since the price of veroboards tend to be high and there are very limited sizes to choose from as far as the smaller boards are concerned, we decided to have some custom made to suit many of our veroboard layouts.  Not only that, we’re able to offer them at a great price that is sure to please.

How to interact and keep up-to-date with mklec

One of the goals of mklec is to provide a place where community happens and also to keep our customers in the loop on what’s new.  This can be challenging since there are numerous options on how to go about this and at the same time avoid “spamming” you all.  We’ve decided the best option for us is to skip the old traditional “forums” and instead embrace Google Plus Communities.  Google Plus is a bit mysterious at first, but as we and many others have come to discover, it’s a really neat place to socialize and we feel it will best suit our needs.

So if you’re looking for where to stay in touch, interact, and share your thoughts and ideas, join our Google+ Community by visiting

Have a great weekend and thanks for being awesome!

What is mklec Select brand?

Welcome to mklec!

Welcome to the blog at
The vision of is to provide consumers, primarily located in the U.S., with very affordable electronic components such as IC chips, transistors, resistors, capacitors, LEDs, etc. so they can spend less money on the items needed to build their DIY circuits and projects.  You can find components from China for low prices, however it requires waiting anywhere from 2-4 weeks for them to arrive and who wants to wait that long?

So we work to bridge the gap: offer low prices comparable to those you’d find ordering from overseas but combined with the fast delivery of being shipped from right here in the U.S.!

Another goal besides just providing you with low prices and fast shipping on your orders is to also provide you with schematics, tutorials, and information on the different ways you can use the components we sell and the various projects you can build with them.  We also are creating “packages” that combine all of the components necessary to build some of the tutorials found here and make it even easier to build the circuits without having to hunt down all of the pieces.  You can also engage with us on our Google+ Page.
