An irresistible addition to anyone starting out in electronics.
Color codes in ACTUAL color is a nice touch! I will eventually cut that out and save it when I move my small components and datasheets to a binder (baseball card storer + small baggies).
I tried putting these resistors in my stiffest breadboard and had with no problem at all! My loosest breadboard holds them pretty good as well.

These are nearly essential if you want to program a picaxe on breadboard. They are cheap enough to not be worth your while to make something similar on your own.
It’s very nice being able to plug this into a breadboard and quickly disconnect the programmer cable from the project if you need to move it to test it. Leave the product on the breadboard as it leaves a circuit every picaxe needs to run stable. Buy two if you’re going to mess around with communications…
The first one I bought got the pins that go in the breadboard all bent up when I left it on my desk, my fault, I know. When I tried to replace them with new ones I ended up melting the soldering pads off of the board, probably my own inexperienced mistake again. Luckily I was able to solder wires in place of the paths on the board. I used my own headers on the second one I bought because the ones that come with it bend a bit easy it seemed like.
No public wish lists :(
