Allen Bradley have “solid” colors used in color band,
Ohmite had this little ridge running the length of the
resistor as though 2 halves were sandwiched together,
Stackpole had sorta Pastel Colors. There was yet another
vendor whose color bands were sorta zig-zaggedly
Just resistor trivia. There was some reasons for knowing
the difference, because the Cryogenic behavior was
radically different from vendor to vendor.
