Resistors and Resistor Kits
 
Carbon composition resistors are made by mixing carbon particles with a binder molded into a cylindrical shaped, and then baked.  Standard "classic" resistor used in vintage amplifiers - Fender™ Blackface and Silverface are prime examples. reverb

1 OHM, 1%, 1/2 WATT PRECISION METAL-FILM RESISTOR FOR INSTALLATION ON POWER TUBES FOR BIAS MEASUREMENT.  ONLY FOR AMPS WITH BIAS ADJUSTMENT CONTROL.
Replace the ground wire on each power tube (pin 8) with this 1 ohm precision resistor.  Read the voltage drop across the resistor (in millivolts) with your meter.  The millivolt reading you obtain will be the same as the cathode current through the tube (in milliamps).

Revisit™ RESISTOR LEAD FORMING TOOL
You know you want one!   Bend resistors to fit in PC boards, perf boards, or turret boards exactly, uniformly.  Makes your repairs and kit builds look completely professional.   Works great on vintage Fender™ Blackface and Silverface models.   One side is for 1/2 watt resistors, the other side fits 1/4 watt resistors.   Also perfect for diodes.  Slots for radial lead resistors run along the length of the high impact ABS plastic former. Each slot is .05″ longer than the next and has radiused edges to make perfect, square, symmetrical  bends without stressing the leads.
