Hello all, I'm hoping for a bit of advice on through-hole resistors and, specifically, how they supplied on 'bands' (if that's the correct expression?).
I make up quite a lot of small soldering kits for my students and for attendees at soldering workshops at "Raspberry Jams". It might sound trivial but the most annoying components to pack in small plastic bags are the resistors... the ones I buy from Rapid come on bands that are approx 6cm wide.
However, I've noticed that Velleman sell packs of assorted resistors that are on narrower bands - about 4cm wide. I was wondering if anyone had ever seen resistors for sale in bulk on these narrower bands? I'm wondering if Velleman has some way of re-banding components because I've noticed that some of their project kits come with bands containing resistors of different values as required by the project.
Any suggestions/pointers kindly received!
