    I posted this in the Buy & Sell section too:
    The resistors I replaced in my decade box are available if anyone wants them. The box was not new when I got it about 50 years ago and I believe some of these resistors may have been from much earlier (perhaps WWII era or soon after).
    I replaced them because a lot of them have resistances 10% higher than indicated.

    If anyone has a use for them (restoring antiques? Just want something different to show people?) they are welcome to them for the cost of postage from K0M 2T0 (Ontario) Canada.
    Contact me through the forum (private conversation) if you are interested.
