Hi Steve and Welcome aboard:

Are you looking for the resistors that snap into clips or do you want 
those with ends that will accept wire?  Mouser has power resistors and 
so does Allied or Newark electronics, just hand on to your wallet for it 
is about to get flatter.




I use Mouser most of the time because they don't have a minimum order. 
Someone may come along who has other sources and I would check prices 
from all before you order.

Hope you get that thing going soon and have great fun with it.
