About Us

Resistance Is Useful! was founded in 2014 by Andrew Turnquist, with help from his partner, PJ Bennett. Our goal is to supply resistors, other passive components, and other interesting electronic components to hobbyists at affordable prices.

Andrew has been an avid electronics tinkerer since a very young age (baby’s first word was “wire.”) and has been a solder smoker most of his life (which might explain a lot of his quirks).
