    Hi,
    I'm wondering if anyone has some leftover resistors they don't need. I'm 50 miles away from the nearest electronics parts store, and don't want to pay $5.00 shipping for a few resistors.

    Thanks,

    GWFAMI

    Have you considered purchasing one of the many assortments on Ebay?

    For a few bucks ($4-$10) you can get hundreds/thousands of assorted resistors of multiple values delivered to your door, shipping included...

    In one of his first posts he was asking about these. I guess he never got around to it (or they're coming by slow boat from China).

    I can sympathise if the second is the case.

    Yeah you have to plan ahead when you purchase overseas... At least in the US a lot of the bigger Ebay based Chinese importers are starting to open distribution houses in the US so that they can improve shipping speed... You might pay a bit more but shipping times are better, although in generally my delivery times from China are in the 10-14 day range so it's not all that bad... So that is another option to consider...

    And on a last note, $5 shipping is likely CHEAP compared to what you will pay locally... RatShack charges $1 (or more) for 5 resistors, it doesn't take long to negate $5 in shipping cost...
