I bought them from a seller in Kent, Washington on eBay. They're even less money direct from China, but I didn't want to wait. Big spender, nein?Glad to hear my post helped. Glad to hear 10k was enough. Where did you get you LED lamps for such a low price?

The 10k's work great, not a bit of glow in the LED's. I thought about buying more packages of different value 1/4 w resistors to play with,, but instead covering my bets by buying bulk 1k's (15 cents) and some 2k''s along with the 12 10k's. I just started with the 10k's and that worked. The grandiose plans to measure exactly went out the window, as did the later plan of measuring heat from the resistors.
Incidentally, I worked out a method to fit the resistors without soldering, although I did solder. I have pictures, if anyone is interested. I don't want to completely hijack this thread, though.
Thank you again for your very helpful posts!
