    i normally get my electronic parts at digikey. they dont have what im looking for this time. looking for a 1kohm 100 watt non-inductive resistor in the "ceramic wirewound" "style"(like in the picture). anyone know of a vendor that is reasonably priced?

    Why don't you make one using nichrome wires.

    How are you going to get a non-inductive wire-wound resistor unless it is specially wound? Hams make their own non-inductive dummy loads by combining a whole bunch of carbon resistors in a paint can filled with oil.

    Nichrome wire is commercially available. You can buy it off eBay.

    If you want I'll check the price from Tanners and get back with you. I'm pretty sure they have the resistor you describe.

    I'd just buy the one from mouser in the link posted above by KJ6 versus rolling my own anyday.

    Actually non-inductive wire-wound resistors are quite common. You start by bending the wire in half then spiral that on.

    How about this one?

    It's spec sheet calls out "non-inductive." $7.15 single quantity.

    Hello,

    The one shown is still inductive.
    The NHL series is Non-Inductive.

    Oops, you are correct, I missed it calling out both types.

    Never mind.

    That is why I added "specially wound".
