But, but, but, mass producing them will be cheaper!  *grin*

Seriously though, buying 50 of the same resistor is cheaper (as a single unit) ...  I have yet to buy less than 100 when it comes to stuff like that.  I'll always find a use for them in whatever future project I come up with.

In your case, if you don't foresee having a use for them in the future, then yeah, buying them in small quantities will be the way to go.

hahaha, Your right
I will have to buy 540 Leds minimum so I guess its bulk in a sense, but the boards will still be assembled by hand so I guess from a mass manufacturing point of view component size wont make such a difference...
