Retired, but still hoarding. (GOF)
- 6 Dec 2011
Great. Thanks Phil. I bought these in the Tandy shop (when I was modelling in N gauge) for my streetlights. That was before my son was born - he's 32 now!! I have a box with several hundred resistors, Lee's and diodes in so it's time to put some of them to use.One of those will probably be fine.. - You can always tweak the voltage up a bit .. - For maximum brightness, with minimum smoke!
Now, there will be many who will tell you, that:
1. 1k is too big. - depends on voltage.
2. They have never, ever used a resistor, and have got away with it for years.
3. You should use a little 'grobber' (small, package of electronics / chip / integrated circuit) to limit the current.
But.......... Seeing as you have the 1k resistors...
