source for small, oblong (SMD ?) LEDs ?

hello, anyone with an idea where I will find the small, oblong (SMD ?) LEDs Kato is using on their new circuit board in the SD40-2 ?
(they are great for nose lights...)

Consider
a 'sample' order.  Usually 10-25 at 20% over the price but a good way to confirm they are exactly what you want...

I was able to get an order from LEDTronics for 20 red SMD LEDS a few years ago at the listed price even though it was for a min 250qty.

Pretty good service from them also.

Steve

Here is my source for all my SMD LEDs I use

www.us.kingbright.com



I just ordered those for street lights. $ 0.38 minimum order 1.

You have to sign up on the internet to see the prices but they have really nice stuff.

Mouser is far and away the best source I've found for SMD components like LEDs and resistors.  Hundreds of LEDs from several manufacturers, great prices, and no minimum order.
