  • Why 4.7, 47,470, 4.7k and 47k? Why not 5, 50, 500, 5k and 50k? What I need is 60k for a sensor. So that means I have to use a 47k, 1k, 1k, 1k, and a 10k to get there. So it can be done, it just looks unpleasant. Or if I was smarter I could put resistors in parallel. Other site have the multiples of 47 resistors as well. I was wondering what they are used for. Maybe they went in line with a variable resistor for adjustment?

No public wish lists :(
