I read the latest magpi issue and am going to attempt the halloween pumpkin project.
I have found all the components I will need however in the article the author suggests getting a resistor starter pack or book.
I am looking to do more projects after this and so was wondering if anyone could recomend a set or book that would have resistors that I amy need?
Thanks in advance of your response.
It's one of those things you want, but only end up using a small number of - and buying resistors individually is expensive (more in postage than anything else!) The sort of thing I was thinking of was this: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10969
which you can get from lots of sparkfun distributors in many countries. (e.g. skpang, coolcomponents, etc. in the UK)
But the other suggestions are good too - especially if you're keen to get involved in making more electronics - Maplin if you're in the UK and want a shop to walk into (convenient, but you pay for that convenience), or ebay can be very cheap. If buying mixed packs from ebay, do get up to speed on your colour codes though!
