There's a lot of misinformation floating around regarding capacitor brand loyalty, but unless you're using NOS Sprague, any new ones are coming from the far east, so likely from the same manufactures as the pretty yellow ones.

The yellow caps are fine I've used them exclusively (ignoring being too broke or away from sources of new parts) till the last year in my radio and TV restos, and have never had a problem with them. I think I've only heard of others finding 1-2 bad ones in all my time. I've found other types cheaper in bulk last year online (finally started buying parts online then) so I've been mixing other new stock in.

Just gotta be careful not to melt the case on the yellow ones with the soldering iron...Too deep and you ruin them that way.

So Sprague is making capacitors in China now, huh. Well now I'm thoroughly disgusted.

Did dynamic convergence for about two hours this morning. Got it as good as I possibly could.

In another century North America will likely be a real-life nation of Panem.
