If you have ever attempted to do electronics, and purchased books on the subject, you are always faced with, or immediately put in the deep end of technical jargon that will bore you to drop the book before you get past the first page .
Well its time to put everything in order and catalogue all the electronic components that you have at your disposal for easier reference and rapid prototype. When I have purchased resistor packs, they have always come in un-labeled packs . In the picture, you will see a number of resistor bags, holding resistors of different values to each other . To start with, before even opening the bags, I have labeled them : packet 1, packet 2, packet 3 etc ........................ .
To make this filing project easier to understand, I will call resistors taped together in a Row, Files . First pick up the packet labeled 1 and remove a file of resistors . Get a pen and mark on the File the number 1 .
Step 1: Label Pack 1 to 12 etc
Next pick up another File of resistors and mark this number 2 , keep repeating this going in sequence 3,4,5,6 until all the resistor Files have their own identification number .
Repeat this procedure for Packet 2 , Packet 3, Packet 4 etc .
