I got a LED flasher kit from All Electronincs the other day. It uses a simple circuit with a small pc board, but there is a difference between it and the classic astable wiring. referring to the schematic below, it has R1 going from pin 8/V+ to pins 6/2 (not to pin 7). R2 and the rest is the same. A guy even mentioned this fact on the All Electronics comment board but nobody answered him. Is anybody familiar with why the circuit is designed like that? I have not put the kit together, but I assume it does blink the LEDs.
