I tried asking this question once in this forum and did not really get a satisfactory answer, but its a question that is on my mind whenever I'm working on a project. What to keep on hand? Resistors, 1 watt: 100ohm 470ohm 820ohm 33k 56k 75k 1k 1.5k 2.2k 4.7k 7.5k 47k 100k 220k 1M 3M Carbon Comp, 1 watt 100k 82k 33k 47k 56k 1% 1ohm 2watt 2.2k 4.7k 10k 22k 470k This is the stuff that I often wish I had more of. To say nothing of caps and other miscellaneous, such as shielded cable, etc. Anyone got anything else to add? I'm sorta trying to create a list of items that I can consult before I order anything from a supplier (shipping is a pain for me and the waiting for a part you really need in a pinch is worse). Probably not a wrong answer here.
