DIY hand-wound resistors
Need higher power resistors, or heaters, as we like to call them? Build them yourself. Matseng hand-wound 6 meters of 38AWG wire to build 12 ohm resistors. He used a pencil and some kapton tape as the base for the resistor.
I needed two power (just ~1 watt) 12 ohm resistors for a project and I only had a bunch of 1 ohm 5w resistors and some random other values that I couldn’t use so I wound two resistors by hand for the first time in my 40 years of electronics tinkering.
