you could also just go to tayda.com and get like 100 or so of every value of resistor and ceramic and electrolytic capacitor in multiples of 10 ,22 and 47


There was a time when resistors were only available in those values back in the vacuum tube days, also their tolerance was an abysmal +/-20%

Maybe I'm a little ole fashioned. I consider those the standard values and everything else oddball.

Yeah, I must admit that I probably use 10K, 100K, 1M & 4K7, 47K, 470K, more often than other values. I think the pattern 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, etc would make more sense, then again with 20% resistors the difference between say 47K and 50K would be irrelevant.
