    \$\begingroup\$ somewhat misleading Mfg paint if yellow is for 5% instead of gold and starting from middle instead of end \$\endgroup\$ – Tony Stewart Sunnyskyguy EE75 Jan 18 at 23:46
  • \$\begingroup\$ @SunnyskyguyEE75 have you seen the price of gold lately? :-) \$\endgroup\$ – Spehro Pefhany Jan 19 at 0:07

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yeah, "gold" paint is some base metal, or mica, flakes and yellow dye \$\endgroup\$ – Jasen Jan 19 at 2:30
  • \$\begingroup\$ Color compound is poor quality. Tolerance band seems to be painted over another color. No ethics at all anymore. Best quality is done with epoxy paints. \$\endgroup\$ – Sparky256 Jan 19 at 4:53
