Default Anyone using Dog Bone resistors in crossovers?

I have been amazed at how good the vintage Dog Bone style resistors
are. A comparison between them and Mills 12w wire wound non inductive resistors showed the dogs to be vastly clearer and far more accurate.
I was just wondering if anyone else had tried them yet....

I'm still looking for 180 ohm 1+ watt Dog Bone resistors if anyone knows where to get them.

I am sure you can find them in Boston.
For different power resistors look here:

If using them in loudspeakers make sure they are counter-woven or non inductive.

Thanks for the suggestion.
The resistors I'm looking for are 60-80 years old.
