Old school high wattage resistors
Before my local shop for electronic components, Labb Elektronik, shut down, they gave away free bags with random stuff. These pictures are the result of sorting the components in these bags.
High wattage resistors. The ones near the camera that look like cork are in fact ceramic. I wonder if they looked like that originally or if they've degraded over time.
