    Trimming leads on resistors and cut off the whole damn thing on one of them. Zero possibility to reattach. Now more days behind and flipping big (relatively) cost for a $0.25 part because I had only the exact quantity on hand.

    Aargh... (insert massive explosion of expletives)!!!!!!!

    That is why when I buy parts, I always order 2-3 pieces more than I need to use.

    Nope. Another order from Mouser for one flippin' resistor. I prefer DigiKey but they do not carry this particular series of resistor.

    Since shipping will be the biggest cost I'll probably order extra for other one-offs I have.
