    We have come into a large quantity of vintage electronics. There is a large quantity of bumble bees. Some have rounded ends some flat. Is that an issue? How do we differentiate them? Is there a site that could help us identify them? Thanks, Mike

    I am not familiar with the term bumble-bee when used to refer to electronic components. Is it possible that you are referring to resistors?

    Can you provide a bit more detail?

    Maybe you could take a digital picture of some of the parts and post it here.
