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!
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 ...
Applying steady pressure scribble a smudge with no line breaks on a piece of paper. The graphite in a No. 2 pencil has electrical properties. More familiar circuit ...
Push two paper clips onto the paper so the metal of each clip is touching the graphite smudge.
Attach the leads of the volt-ohm meter to the paper clips and measure the resistor value. Move the paper clips closer together to decrease the resistor value. Beware ...
