WTB: GE Original Paper Capacitors

I am looking for original General Electric paper capacitors that I can restuff for a 1939 GE HM-171 television I'm working on. I believe these same style capacitors were used on GE radios of the time so I'm hoping some one has saved some of these when they recapped a radio, or some one has some parts chassis that they wouldn't mind removing them from and selling to me. The printed values I need are:
1- 0.0015uf 600v
1- 0.001uf 600v
1-0.002uf 600v
1- 0.004uf 600v
1- 0.005uf 600v
1- 0.006uf 600v
1- 0.01uf 600v
9- 0.02uf 600v
1- 0.04uf 600v
2- 0.1uf 200v
2- 0.1uf 400v
Here is a picture of the style I'm looking for.



If any one is in the Pittsburgh area and has GE parts chassis that they don't feel like messing with, but would allow me to pick over them I could come to you as well.

Thank you to any one who can help.

I've got an untouched GE Locomotive, would those help? I'd have to see if they're the same kind, but you may be able to glean that info from pics on here.

Well, right, but I assume he's looking to re-stuff them

Might be a lot easier to scan the labels and "roll yer own".

I have a feeling that the locomotive might be too new to have these caps. I think I'm going to need to find them in a 30s-early 40s radio. I'd love to see a picture just to be sure though.

It might be easier, but I'm a glutton for punishment and obsessed with small details...especially on a prewar set.

I would imagine if you could find NOS parts like those caps, they would be good, but the heat, and high voltages would give them a relative short life, like in the original equipment they were installed in. I have seen many NOS caps sold on ebay for quite a bit, bumble bee caps for example, for use in some audio equipment - like guitar amps.

John, don't you have a GE 801 which is one of the earliest postwar GEs. If the 801 caps are newer then the locamotive would be also.

I will not be using these caps as-is. I simply need the original caps to restuff with new components.

I've got bags of wax caps I've removed from radios. There is a fair chance I have what you need. I'll try to check my stock later.

No, they'll go bad/drift from sitting too. The reason guitar amp guys go nuts for them is so that they can get that "tone". Some leakage could be permissable in their case although not ideal for us TV folk.
