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!

Step 1: 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.
great idea
&quot;If only we had a resistor we could complete the defense robot and stop the zombies!&quot;<br> <br> &quot;No problem, I just need a pencil, a piece of paper and two paper clips.&quot;
Very nice instructable.
Very nice instructable.
Add a third paperclip in the middle and make a potentiometer :)
McGuyver would be proud!
Damn! This works? Nice thought!
