Decade resistor box


Posted on Mar 29, 2013

This device was designed to use two generic-patterned, pre-made, pre-drilled circuit boards that are available from Radio Shack, and other places. Parts consist of: two generic pre-etched and pre-drilled PCBs (printed circuit boards), 136 precision 1%, 1/2-Watt metal-film resistors (46 values), seven 1P10T rotary switches, seven knobs, two binding posts, wire, solder, drilled cast-aluminum or plastic case (7.5`x4.3`x2.4`), panel markings, and rubber feet.
