the article said that he soldered ceramic insulator strips to the old
can type multipart electrolytics, then attached single caps to those
strips. This was a while ago, and I dont recall where I saw the article.
I have a PACO signal tracer. It does work, but has a noticable hum. So,
I plan to recap it. There are only 4 paper caps, so that's easy. But
there is a FOUR part electrolytic 20 - 20 - 10 - 10 450V (2 are 350V).
There are at least 6 resistors across those pins, and several wires as
well. That chassis is not very large either. Some sort of strip that
could go to each cap terminal (but insulate if from the original cap
innards) would be ideal.
Anyone know what this guy is talking about?
Yea, I am familiar with the standard terminal strips, but there is not
much room to use those which have a terninal NEXT TO the one that
mormally gets screwed to the chassis. Stuffing the can seems like too
I did find one NEW two part can, which is 32 - 32 at 500V. (for not too
bad of a price $13). I suppose I could use that to replace the two 20mf
caps, but still have the two 10s to deal with. Finding three part cans
seems near impossible, unless I want to pay ridiculous prices and most
of them are NOS. (For electrolytics, I wont use NOS caps), nor will I
pay $50 or more for an any cap, much less NOS.
Anyone have any idea what these strips are, or know of a place where I
can get at least a 3 part cap for a fair price? (like 20 - 20 - 10 or 20
- 10 - 10)?
