    Finally bought myself a lead former (yeah !) -- now that leaded
    components are rapidly becoming has-been.

    And after buying bulk forever, I need to know --

    What is the difference between "cut tape" and "tape and box" that digi
    key has listed in their resistors?

    I know what tape and reel are --- are tape and box that "fanfold"

    I need to start feeding my new lead former.

    Have you tried asking Digi-Key? (or wherever you're getting them)

    Good Luck!

    Should all be on the datasheets!

    In general, "tape and reel" would be parts on tape, rolled onto a reel
    (maybe 5,000 parts per reel). "tape and box" is the more compact
    folded version of that (maybe 2,000 parts per box). Cut tape would be
    some length removed from one of the previously mentioned types (small
    quantity only).
