Can also use resonator. Will not be as stable timing wise but will work.

I think I will try that. I have a small bag of resonators from a grab bag I got and may find what I am looking for before I buy anything. The only problem is that I am not sure what the markings mean. XD


Take some very clear pictures and post here. Lots of smart people here on this board to help out.

I have tried before, but cannot put any pictures on.
Here is an example of one: 271
I know the latter one is probably a voltage rating, but I'm not sure what the first is.


oscillators are 3 pin packages, what you discribe is a capacitor

Yup, three pins in a row, usually poking out of a yellow or blue blob. Rat Shack may still carry them, if so, use a 16MHz one for easiest compatibility with existing Arduino board configurations. Also have a look at the RBBB arduino from modern devices, it's as bare as it gets.
