    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...

    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.

    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.
