Default Re: Never assume anything!

Decades ago, HeathKit earned the nick name "GriefKit" here in the States.

Some of their kits had mis-marked resistor color code stripes, and some of the diodes had the cathode band marked on the anode.

Made for interesting times, I tell you. Soured me on their products, too.
