Power resistor replacement

I seem to recall a post recently where someone was trying to locate power resistors with stand off support.
I recently had an issue when looking for similar replacement but did not have much time to seek one out.
I had some power resistors that were meant to be mounted vertically with a channel in one side and board clips.
In order to replicate the original style, I came up with some improvisation.
The pictures tell the story, the muffler cement sets up pretty hard!
14g Copper wire used for support & conductor. Tin from a coffee can trimmed to suit slot and soldered connection.

Hello there Sir.
:) I can't find a question about anything in your post you're providing information that does not lead to a question? You do have excellent fabrication skills. I just don't know what else to say…:rolleyes:

There was no question, I am fairly sure there was a previous post here about finding replacements for a type of resistor with stand off's.
This recent effort of mine was an attempts to help them, or at least give someone in the same situation an idea to fabricate.
