There is an interesting New Year conversation going on at the All About Circuits forum.
Members are knocking around getting their electronic resistor parts under control for the New Year. Guys have to get organized and it's not always about hunting gear you know?
If you're into tinkering with electronics this winter, you probably get tired of buying what you need each time, and choose to start a supply area or "kit" as some call it.
But as one reader says, "when you have over 150 different resistors, how do you store them? Shelves really do take too much space, and can be hard to maintain. Lord help you if you drop one and scatter the contents to the 4 winds." The parts can be very, very small.
