Who needs Radio Shack anyways?
A 6V zener is fairly unusual; usually they go from 5.6V to 6.2V, although any voltage is possible.
6V is a rare transitional voltage between a LVA (low voltage avalanche) and a true Zener; the tempco switches right at about 6V.
A stack of rectifiers has a "knee" about 0.7V per diode...
At least you can find your parts. Half of my drawers and boxes are marked “misc.”
Lol, it wasn't always like this. Used to be everything was inside a box inside individual packages.
Seems the label maker helps.
Mine are more orderly but I still have three drawers labeled "jazz," for some reason.
Charles! You must have a lot of time on your hands these days to label all those such! Gosh!
Did you retire or sumtin'?
Drawers possess good sound. Boxes not so much.
I have many drawers of parts, including drawers full of rectifiers that can be stacked to function like just about any Zener I desire.
Well...as a certain consolation, they arrived TODAY! Less than 24 hours after I ordered them....FedEx ground.
