Re: James ML 1.5 Ohm resistor.

I made one. Turned it from a bit of lignum vitae (the correct stuff's dust is a carcinogen). Made the brass contacts fron the bits of an old light switch and wound it woth some enamelled copper wire. Pretty much indistinguishable from the original.

Re: James ML 1.5 Ohm resistor.

Hi Monty.
I think I can replicate the innards it’s the top cap that looks difficult. I’ve not seen hands on a real one yet, perhaps when I do I will have better idea as to replicating one.
Cheers John.
The one on EBay went for over £250.00............

Re: James ML 1.5 Ohm resistor.

The top cap is simple. It's just a flat disc with a beveled/chamfered edge (not rolled) the material is 1/16" X 1 15/16" diam. Ron

Slowly getting there Ron, I have had the drawing for the blanks done, just got to get it to the laser cutters, etc. I haven't forgotten.

Re: James ML 1.5 Ohm resistor.

Cheers Ron.
I’m reasonably happy with my effort. It will do until I can afford a proper one, seeing as the one on EBay went for £250.00.
