Step 1: Gather the materials
Step 2: Scribble resistance
Step 3: Add the paper clips
Step 4: Measure the resistor
Beware (mild): Don't let your fingers touch the leads when you are measuring the resistance. Your human contact to the leads with body resistance will distort the meter reading.
Beware (medium): Don't let the paper clips touch. If the paper clips touch there is an electrical 'short' as there is no resistance and your circuit might get damaged.
BEWARE (HIGH): This is LOW VOLTAGE SOLUTION - - do NOT use this in high voltage circuits.
The results of this DIY resistor vary enormously - - you did it yourself!
