hi gang

just been musing about days gone bye, wonder how many others have done this......

many yrs ago "in another life" I used to do a lot of old valve radio restoration. we (other restorers and I) always wanted the radio to look as original as possible and as you could imagine the electros of values like 10uF and 350V were just no longer available in the required style.
We used to hollow out all the gunk from the old aluminium can and mount more modern caps inside pot them then seal them up. once remounted on the radio chassis you would never know it wasnt an original cap :)

cheers
Dave
