Using SMT component books for through-hole parts

Resistorbook Sm

Using SMT component books for through-hole parts, isonno writes –

A few years ago I purchased a kit from Digi-Key with 70-some of the most common resistors in a small box. While it’s super convenient to have them all on hand, the packaging was tedious – little bags of bags of components.

On a hunch, I purchased AdaFruit’s blank SMT component book, and hired my son to trim the labels from the Digi-Key kit and place them in the book. It works really well.

The books are so much more convenient than boxes of packets of parts, and take up much less space than plastic containers with bins or drawers. I could imagine this working for other through-hole parts (small caps, diodes, etc.). With a slightly different layout – say, horizontal pockets for labels with square vertical pockets beneath – it’d work for transistors and other components.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
