Resistor Kit - 1/4W (500 total)
Resistors are a good thing, in fact, they’re actually crucial in a lot of circuit designs. The only problem seems to be that resistors disappear into thin air. The only way to be sure that you’re gonna have the resistor you need when you need it is to stock up, and keep them organized. We have just the thing! Our new branded resistor kit comes with 25 each of 20 different resistor values (including 0? links!). All of these resistors are stapled into a tri-fold pack and clearly labeled. The back of the resistor kit even has a resistor color code look-up chart and a table of color codes for t..
