Capacitors Wanted
« on: November 28, 2007, 02:55:47 PM »
Looking for the following capacitors - any type, axle mount.

(x1) 2200     uF 48V
(x1) 2500     uF 40v (Pol)
(x1)  250     uF 70V (pol)
(x1)  100     uF 63v (pol)
(x3)   25     uF 70v
(x1)    0.075 uF 160 VDC
(x2)    0.1   uF   160 VDC

It is for my Thorens TD125 mkI turntable.

I'll pay somebody to make up this parcel and get it sent to me. Please note that Lydenburg's last electronics repair store has closed down  :'(  :'(

Dewald,

Insert "capacitor"* in the Search block - top right - or phone them, it's often easier to ask them than even do the search. We buy a lot of bit & pieces from them, and generally get better prices over the phone than I do from their web site. They will then email or fax the PF invoice to you, pay the boodle in, send off the Proof of payment and arrange for a pickup with a courier company. They may or may not post it to you as well, don't know, I have always used our courier company.

* or try "2200uF", might also work. There is Communica as well, but I have always just used Mantech.

I've just tried searching for "2200uF", and amongst other results, there is this one:

Thank you Eric!

Also seems like Schalk might be able to help - he is in the business...  ;D

Dont know if I am just paranoid bout chaning the caps but I think it will be for the better.

I seldom bother, unless the caps are coupling caps, specifically with PIO (paper in oil), because they leak like a sieve! Electrolytics have a reform process and are generally quite reliable, but if they are subject to heavy ripple (as in the case of the first cap in a C-L-C power supply) then it's wise to change them, or if they have been subjected to high temperatures. Many old caps might still have capacitance, but their DC leakage prompts replacement.

If the gear has stood idle for long and not powered up caution is in order to. Reform with a variac before applying full juice.


I can also recommend Logitech, not the cheapest but prepared to buy out and do your shopping for you. Saves a lot of grief vs 90% components one place and then hunting for the other 10 elsewhere.
