@themadhippy   'tis true, though I don't think @Philip. feels fully clued up on the basics at present so concocting resistances with combination series/parallel might be a step too far at this stage.   By all means have a go Philip if you want to try that approach.

Yeah, let's face it, the resistor value is not critical to the nth degree. You're definitely going to find something suitable in one of those 'mega packs'

Resistors purchased, now the learning begins. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? [the wife usually]  :D

Thanks for all the help :thankyousign:

Just a quick follow up, bought a shed load of different value resistors, it has been very educational working out which ones to use and in doing so gained a bit more knowledge of electrickery. Nothing's blown up yet so must be doing something right.

Thanks everyone for the help  :thumbsup:
