I am building my first single tube Radio kit. I broke the lead on a 47K resistor & I have a 51K resistor. Is it to big to use as a replacement or should I order a 47k?

Thanks, RK-Rookie

Most resistors are within 20% +/- tolerance so a 51K should work. It may reduce voltage slightly in the circuit your using so if you have any performance issues you can change it back later if need be.
