Hi all, now i know your thinking "great another kid that doesnt know what hes doing" ahah !

But its not that at all,

Where the fudge can i buy the 1w 1.2k ohm and the 1w 6.8 or 7k risistors from? Everywhere ive gone in the Lake Illawarra NSW region does not have them and cannot get them.. and its starting to annoy me ahah :twisted:

Cheers everyone

Maybe I did use 1 watt. It was about 5 years ago.

Go for a run to Jaycar on Keira st. http://www.jaycar.com.au/stores.asp?State=NSW
Should have what you're after.

Otherwise to get 1.2kohms 1 watt, use 2 x 2.4kohms 1/2 watt resistors in parallel,
6.8kohms 1 watt, use 2 x 13.6kohms 1/2 watt resistors in parallel. If you can't get exact, use smaller resistance 1 watt resistors in series.
