    Methinks you got yourself more than just resistors.
    Did you have a question about them, or did you want us to envy your good fortune?

    Sadly there are only a relatively few different values and LOTS of them. Such amounts don't command high prices as no-one 'really' needs 5,000 of the same value resistor etc......

    You'd realise far more money if you sold them as smaller bags (say 10 of each value) but that means a bit of work....

    Too bad you're so far away, I'd take 'em off your hands.
    I don't know what-all is in your neck of the woods.
    If you don't want to try eBay, maybe you could check into any Amateur Radio clubs in your area, or any electronics hobby-type clubs that you might be able to make a deal with. If not the clubs themselves, they may sponsor 'swap meets', where members and other interested people meet to buy and sell electronic components between one another. If all that fails, maybe a school that sponsors electronics classes in your area might be interested in them.
    Here in the States people can donate to a school and claim a tax credit for that. I don't know how it works where you are, maybe they might buy the lot from you.

    I'd take them too but, as mentioned, the multiplicity makes them worth less than you're asking. Problem would also be collection/delivery - you're looking at £25/30 for postage on top....

    HeeHaw :)
    That's a hefty pile! Hopefully someone will come along soon and take them off your hands buddy.
    I was sorting through stuff I bought in a job lot a couple days ago. Just googling or checking eBay to see what the stuff actually is or does. I pulled out a bag of around 100 small transistors,typed the part no into eBay,it came up with just 1 add from a seller in America,£6.80 per transistor and £14.50 postage! WOOHOO!! Then I thought...who's gonna want 100 of these!? :confused:

    There's not a lot of anything particularly useful amongst it all. I have 100 each of every resistor in the E24 range and even that's more than I need! A few THOUSAND doesn't help.

    Seems like you're getting the same response re the 'value' of these parts from other sites you've advertised too (UK Vintage Radio) - same concerns over quantity, same suggestions over breaking them down into manageable sized amounts....

    Not say 'I told you so' but perhaps it would be better (if you have no particular love for these items) to donate them to your local radio/electronics society if there is one? Members on the Vintage radio site often 'give away' such stuff (for the cost of postage) on the basis of asking for donations to a charitable cause.

    Just a suggestion.
