Where do you purchase your low voltage capacitors?
I need some small ones.

Digi-Key and Mouser - look for 4 or 5mm diameter types from Panasonic or Nichicon.

4 Volts and up, values from .1uF to 220uF.

Thanks so much. I wondered if there was someone doing capacitors for the transistor portable radio repair. I've used Mouser and DigaKey before. I usually work on tube radios but couldn't resist a nice, nostalgic GE P780, Thanks again

Radio Shack also has a supply of 35 and 50 volt common value Electrolytic caps in both radial and axial configuration.

I recapped my P-780 sometime back. I think it only took two Electrolytics, but memory ain't that accurate. :wink:

Newark Element 14. Great prices and no order minimum. Radio Shack if you can't wait. It was nice to see axial capacitors there.
