Picture of DIY Emergency resistor - an electronic circuit component
Your in a cabin in the woods, your circuit is due tomorrow and the parts store is closed. You need is a few resistors now!

Picture of Gather the materials
To make resistors you need a volt-ohm meter, some paper clips, slips of paper and a graphite pencil. I prefer a No. 2 pencil as a No. 1 is harder to find in an emergency.

"If only we had a resistor we could complete the defense robot and stop the zombies!"

"No problem, I just need a pencil, a piece of paper and two paper clips."
