San Mateo Electronics (SMElectronics.com) would be a good place. Small, local, old-school electronics store that carries kits by Elenco and Velleman.

I also could not get the relay to trip initially. Based on the comments here, I replaced the 10k resistor with a 5.1k resistor, and now the relay trips reliably. SparkFun, if you are listening, you need to change the resistor in this kit.
* Kit Ryan’s OvenFlow manual says that there are SparkFun assembly instructions; there were none in the box, and I couldn’t find any on the SparkFun site.
* The OvenFlow manual also says that the SparkFun logo should come up on screen when you first power up the unit. It doesn’t. All you get is black bars across the screen. I then programmed the PIC using Kit Ryan’s OvenFlow code and breathed a sigh of relief to see the OvenFlow menus on the display.
Now that I have it running, I am very psyched about this controller. Now I need to get going on some surface mount projects.
No public wish lists :(
