Resistor color codes still got you down? Well we have the answer!

Introducing the Synthrotek Resistor Color Code wheel:

Yep, that resistor is 560 Ohms.

How do you get your own cool color code wheel? You can download it right now, print it and assemble it yourself.

You’re supposed to use a brass fastener to hold the 3 wheels together. But first off what is a brass fastener?  Second, even if you do know what it is, do you really have one around the house? We just used a screw and then taped it on the back side. 🙂

For those people that prefer charts, tables and diagrams we also have a Resistor Codes Chart and a Capacitor Codes Chart

Happy decoding!
