    Ready made resistance boxes are readily available on-line like this one.

    Even cheaper from China, but goodness knows when they would be delivered.

    Hi All,
    Just a coupla pics of a typical 'mess' on my 'electrickery' bench (that's electricackle for JB๐Ÿ˜)
    showing some breadboarding tests with LEDs.
    From the left:-
    - a simple flasher (๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ˆ) for Ed's Brooklyn,
    - the basic 'lash up' enabling me to test LED/resistor combinations in series and/or parallel at various voltages from my variable PSU and check the current draw and brightness,
    - a lash up to test SMD LEDs for a mast arrangement,
    - testing 5mm LEDs for Haig (Down Under) for an 'all round' strobe flasher. His will be All blue!

    The 'chocolate block' octopus at the bottom is a work in progress, the result of me wanting to test the newly arrived Action RC switches, and getting peed off with the plethora of different connectors, or none, on stuff we buy๐Ÿค” So, instead of making up yet another pair of leads for the PSU I decided to make an adaptor/distributor for all the different connector types, plus open wires.๐Ÿ˜ Provision is made for connecting an ammeter and/or external lab multi-meter.
    I can also connect the little Wattmeter to it if I want to run motor tests, using LiPos on the input for more than the 5A the PSU provides.
    A fuse board can also be connected in series with the input. Has a socket for car type fuses or a 30A circuit breaker. For brushed motor tests a two colour LED (red/green) indicates forward or reverse.
    The little Robbe Servo Tester box on the far right can be added to test run Servos, switches and ESCs without having to fiddle about with the TX and RX.

    Sometimes I think I spend more time making jigs and gadgets than model making.
    But it will save time in the long run. Honest Injun๐Ÿ˜
    "Sometimes it is difficult to concentrate on your original objective of draining the swamp,
    when you're up to your arse in alligators!"๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Now then - back to the pink gin๐Ÿ˜‹
    Cheers, All. Keep healthy and sleep well๐Ÿ‘
    Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    PS The construction bench never seems to look much better๐Ÿค”
