I'm thinking about getting a power resistor decade box. I've been looking at older stuff (which is cooler), but I also found a brand new one made by our friends over in China that seems like a fair price.

Does anyone here have experience with this particular item? Any recommendations otherwise, maybe for vintage stuff?
That one doesn't go very high only 10K. It also doesn't mention what the wattage is for the resistor. I would guess that it has 1/2 resistor in it as does the vintages  ones. If you want something that will handle more current you are probably looking at building something.
