opinion on 1/8 watt resistors & Steve D suggestion
I have found that a really bright light helps with reading this stuff. Maybe you could go to a jeweler's supply for a 'whatchacallit' that they look at diamonds with.  
Speaking of small parts, do any of our experts have any idea whether 1/8 W resistors are OK in normal guitar effect circuits? I have a lot of parts boards in the junk pile that could yield some resistors if I could use them.  
Even at 1.60 per hundred, I am still too cheap to outfit myself with the whole assortment of resistors I would be needin'.  
Or does someone stock a variety pack with all the cool values?  
Steve D- stocklist idea? Do a cap starter pack, and a resistor starter pack? You are such a great resource for beginners, I bet it would be a big seller. It would also probably simplify your order filling chores, as people would be ordering less of the individual parts [set up an assembly line style method of making the starter kit, or sub that out to your suppliers if possible].  
I started out with the 1/4 watt resistor variety pack from The Shack, but there were some big gaps in their selections.
