Jeff. I have 27 years experience as as game tech. I NEVER use cap kits. The qaulity is poor. The price is to high and they don,t give you all the caps. I take a legal pad and make columns for C.pos., uf and vlts values of each. I then make another set of columns and for qan. of each value, uf and vlts. I then go thru and check off each value down the list starting at the top and enter them on the second column. Exmple 4ea. 100uf@16vlts. on line one. I then look up that value in my DigiKey cataloge(easier than @ there online page), trust me. I always use 105o caps and there unit or 10ea/100ea bulk price is way, way cheaper than any other source I,v found. The qaulity is the same. Good luck on your next project.

@Ronnie: Thanks for the feedback! I get all my cap kits from Bob Roberts, who has done an excellent job piecing these together for his customers. Bob does a great job assembly quality kits. I don’t do enough cap kits to justify buying them in bulk, but if I did I would probably do what you do. It’s good advice to anyone looking to do several cap kits.

Best place to sell is Craigslist. I just sold my pro built custom restored 60N1 on there. I sold another last month with AN LCD monitor. Forget Ebay, C.L. is free!

Gabe: Also check out http://forums.klov.com There are several collectors there that may want to buy it.
