    I usually do that. Everytime I sacrifice a junk resistor for a bit of jumper wire.

    Yep. I have a coffee can under the bench. Full of ammo taped grab bag purchase years ago.-- odd ball values like 6M8 Ω and the like.

    Basic rule of carpentry also applies here. Measure twice, cut once!:whip:

    I always cut my leads off with the component installed to the board, just before soldering. If no board is used, the wrap the leads together, cut excess lead, then solder.

    I guess I've been doing it wrong. I cut after soldering. I do use some Hakko cutters similar to the ones above.

    This was cut after soldering, not a pre trim. It was for g2 / g3 resistors soldered close to the tube socket terminals. I just snipped a little too deep and got into the main lead as well as taking off the intended tag end.

    Was supposed to be part of another socket assembly like this one - where the snips got only the intended targets. It was 3 down, 1 to go and now you know the rest of the story. LOL.

    This is for a 6EJ7 connected as a triode.

    For low cost parts like that I usually order by the 100 if its a common value. Odd values for specific tasks I usually get 10 but I may order less for more expensive items.
