ok so i havent done the install yet, but i thought of a clever way to set up a resistor to be crimped in. For those who dont want to solder it for various reasons.
first i started off with a 20k 1/2w 5% resistor and two 18-22 guage butt connectors
then i clipped the ends of the resistor about 1/4" and crimped it into the first connector. being careful to not put the body of the resistor into the metal crimp section so it wouldnt shatter (learned from experience)
then the other connector, taking same precaution
then some shrink tubing for extra strength and rigidity
then a label for easy I.D
then i realized i had access to a shrink tubing label maker and wanted to be fancy
now all that has to be done is a couple of crimps and its good to go.
