2011-07-20 (Day 327) Components

Another of these "what can I shoot today?" pictures. This one is in fact a box that contains loads of surface-mount resistors of various values. Each of the little plastic boxes contains loads of the little components.

Now, when I was a lad, resistors were about seven millimetres long; you could hold them, stick them through the holes on a bit of Veroboard and solder them with a muckle great soldering iron without any difficulty.

How times change – you need a magnifying glass even to see these things… how you solder them by hand I just do not know!

But the container made for an interesting picture!
