|| MOULDED WIRE-WOUND RESISTORS |
|USED IN OLDER MODELS FROM 1936 TO 1940s
PHILCO introduced a new type moulded resistor [March, 1936, Philco Serviceman] to replace the flexible wire-wound resistors formerly used. This moulded resistor is similar to the small mica condenser used in current  models and has the advantage of being moisture and "short" proof.
The resistance wire is wound on a special heat-resisting strip with the respective wire ends attached to eyelets in each end of the strip. The connecting leads are also clamped under these eyelets. The strip is then placed in a mold and a special bakelite composition applied. These resistors, which carry standard R.M.A. color code, come in the following sizes:
| Audio Transformers | Bakelite Block Condensers | BC Resistors | Chokes | Carbon Resistors | Compensating Condensers |
| Dial Lamps | Field Coils | Hum Controls | Metal Condensers | Paper Condensers | Mica Condensers | Electrolytic Condensers |
| Power Transformers | Tone Controls | Tuning Condensers | Volume Controls | Wire-Wound Resistors |
