    Your gold band (5%) so much resembles yellow that I am going to have to study this very closely.;)

    If you look closely, they seem to have the Braille marks for tactile recognition.

    I think the angle they are pointing is an encoding of the number...

    Hey, what's going on with 20% tolerance? Too big difference or something is missing?

    You will tell me that nobody produce them these nowadays but I thing I should ask.

    According to this parametric search page from www.mouser.com, they carry 8053 resistors rated at 20%, 25%, and 30% accuracy.

    http://www.mouser.com/Passive-Components/Resistors/_/N-5g9n/

    The part that seems odd to me is that you can buy four (4) zero ohm resistors rated at 20% accuracy.:confused:

    What is the wattage rating on those 0 ohm resistors?

    The politically correct version.

    Bad boys rush our young girls but violet greets wisely.

    Bad boys race our young girls but violet generally wins the gold and silver.

    I learned it like this - the rest is likewise unprintable.

    .. But Violet Gives Willingly - Get Some Now (gold, silver, none)
