TTL - Is there a logic gate or IC that does this?

I was planning on wanting to do a single purchase of like a grab bag or kit of some sort.

There are often local suppliers who cater to the hobby market - but you have to look around for them.
Try the yellow pages under electronics supplies and look for "hobby".

In Australasia, an outfit known a "Dick Smith Electronics" can be good for this, they make kits too.
There used to be many more. I used to get my components from workshops who repair radios... but I was a kid back then and could get away with hanging around the back doors of these places asking questions until someone gives me something to do.

However, ICs are usually not sold in "grab bag" style where you get a range in one package.
You have to tell them what you want and how many you need.

In a pinch you can sometimes order from the manufacturer.

Nice to hear the CMOS cookbook is still around ... it is really good value.

"Dick Smith Electronics" have moved out of electronic components and kits.
DSE has been largely replaced in .au by “Jaycar” who sell components and kits …

@ Simon Bridge. There are Jaycar dealers now on both sides of the Tasman.

Logic circuits are pretty easy to work with, in addition to the TTL ICs, a breadboard, and a 5V power supply - you need to be able to control inputs and "see" outputs - so SPST switches, push buttons, LEDs and resistors.

You will find that the ICs and LEDs have smoke in them - that is normal, but once the smoke is let out, the device is dead.

Also there appear to be some pretty good Logic Circuit Simulators on the web- they are typically smoke free.

Oh cool.

There is a DSE in Auckland that still does the hobby-components market ... obviously they are just doing it on their own. But thanks - it's been a while since I did any serious hobby electronics.
