Not that I'm complaining, well, maybe I am...


Recommended Posts

Is it just me or are through hole components getting harder to find? I was looking for a 6800pF 25V axial cap the other day after

both Best and MyAtari said they didn't have any, and I finally found some on TEDSS.com (well it was 20V, but that's good enough

for an 8 bit Atari). Now I'm still puckered because they are listed for $9.68 EACH! I've looked at Mouser, and Digikey and Jameco,

and all the other usual places without any luck. Anyone know of any surplus stores that might have something like this before I drain

my retirement account for some caps?

All my 16V caps in my 1200XL were replaced with 32V, because that's all Radio Shack had at the time. Now the whole store is Out Of Stock(business). Overkill in volts handled by a cap isn't an issue, but I'd have to take a close look at the circuit and it's purpose before I'd replace with caps of less voltage, like 20V instead of 25V, making sure the 25V cap was more than needed in the first place.
