[volt-nuts] LTZ1000 resistors, lower collector currents

Hi John,
Vishay also claim that special values are the same cost as standard. They basically build / laser zap to order. I've not ordered special foil resistors from them but have had pots with odd values ans laws made without any issues in the past.

Thanks Randy, I had not heard of these. They seem to be resellers /
customizers of Vishay parts. Vishay themselves do claim to offer
special values in prototype quantities but I have assumed they would
still be too expensive (compared to the equivalent made up of individual
stocked parts).

Perhaps I should actually ask them.
