Power Regulator Fell Off

Oh No!!!
One of the power reglators but snapped off my EZ board - the little pin in the heat shield wasn't soldered into the board and the pins snapped off through movement*stress*

It's the one numbered 29300.
Does anyone know what the correct name of this is - I'm going to have to get anoter one stat.

If anyone can recommend where I could buy one of these that would be great.

It's a 5V Regulator

Model: MIC29300
Output: +5V, 3A
Style: TO-220-3

You can get from www.digikey.com:)

If you can't, let me know and i can have one sent to you in a few days in an envelope mail
Thanks mate.
I'll check out local equivalent here in Australia and let you know how I go.
radioshack has the 5v reg too , I think its about $3.50 , I dont know if you have radioshack out there though
Ok so I just went down to my local J-car (virtually the only place in Aust where you can buy this type of thing) and they didn't have the exact one. I brought a 5V 3A (style TO-220) regulator and tried it but no love.

I think I have to take you up on that offer DJ if that is ok?

I'll send an email though the contact section.

If the pins on the Board were faulty - why not send it back ?
I don't mind trying to fix it - need the right part though!
Hopefully I hear back soon - dying to run some scripts I've put together. Also just put a servo in one of the wrists of my robot and need to test.
