What is the value of this resistor vintage 1950's

The wire is broken off one end of this resistor and need help with values to replace pleasehttps://mail.google.com/mail/u/0?ui=2&ik=84f3551ba4&attid=0.1&permmsgid=msg-f:1691516243153287292&th=1779790fa4f4787c&view=att&disp=safe

Hello Aubrey0730,

Thank you for your inquiry. I cannot make out the colors on this one, but below is a great resistor color-code calculator that may help you:

Fire up your volt meter and see if you can get a reading of 5.6 ohms out of it. I spoke with one of my colleagues and if you switch that white to read as a silver on the middle band it starts to look like that value of resistance.

a variety of options are available here: 5.6 Ohm Axial Resistors

Hi Michael. There are the following ohms choices on my BK Precision meter: 20M. 200k. 20k. 2k. And 200. I get no reading at all on any setting except the 200…and it jumps around generally near 160.8 but very jumpy as if not reading properly. Your thoughts??

Hello again. I would like to order one 5.6 ohm axial resistor of your choice.

I imagine the 200’s would be the best one if it doesn’t have a red one to go into (usually they can pick that up).

If you application is radio or needs higher accuracy, the options here should work well. Drop as an email at orders@digikey.com, call in at 1-800-344-4539, or use the checkout features on the website.

We do not have the ability to complete a sale over our forum I do apologize.

The group of four color bands look like green, blue, red, silver to me (5.6k 10%).

Here is a link to some options that are 5.6K and axial leaded.
