Default Massive collection of electrolitic caps - Donation to DiyAudio.

Hi,

I have a box full of electrolitic caps most of which are audio grade to some extent and some high quality parts - the list is below. They were going in the skip at work because they are not Rohs compliant (How geen is that).

Most are at least 3 years old and some are much older, but they are all unused parts. There is about 700 parts, each one must be worth at least 1 at retail and some much more.

Since they cost me nothing, I don't plan to make any money out of them, just the postage cost. I will donate all the money raised over the postage cost to DIY AUDIO to help with the cost of running the site.

I really don't want to split them as it would generate alot of work for me. So roll up and get yourself a collection. Or buy the lot and sell them on.

Since I don't know what they are worth I propose to do this as an auction to the highest bidder. If the moderators are unhappy with this let me know. Or just put your suggestion in this thread.

If no one is interested the I guess it is too the skip with them (I have too much stuff already)

List of parts.

4700uF 10v ZL Rubicon ~30
100uF 35V ZL Rubicon ~80
2200uF 50V YK Rubicon 12
3300uF 63V USR Rubicon 4
10uF 16V Silmic II Elna 10
100uF 400V HC Samwha 8
3300uF 63V HC Samwha 6
10000uF 25V WB Samwha 46
180uF 20V SP OSCON SANYO 100
100uF 400V CD293 Jianghai 10
10000uF 50V USR Rubicon 6
4700uF 25V WB Samwha ~50
3300uF 35V SD Samwha 10
1000uF 100V SD Samwha 2
22uF 20V SP OSCON SANYO ~50
47uF 100V SD Samwha 6
1000uF 35V CD282 Jianghai 10
1000uF 35V WL Samwha 10
22uF 20V SP OSCON SANYO ~90 (These are very old and the leads will need cleaning before use)
100uF 20V SP OSCON SANYO ~130 (Old as above)
100uF 16V YK Rubicon ~30

Regards,
Andrew

I would be delighted to take them. A donation to DIY audio would be obligatory of course.

Blair

I'll start with a 15

Hi Andrew,

This is a very generous offer for the community and DIYA. So thanks all round for that.

Just a couple of suggestions:

Since you've elected to let them go to the highest bidder, you might want to set a closing date/time.

Could I ask anyone interested to keep offers in thread please so as to be transparent to all and avoid possible confusion.

Hi,

Unless people feel I should give more time, shall we say Sunday the 10th Febuary as the closing date. I will see who the highest bidder is on Monday morning and work out what the postage will be.

I suggest the donation is made direct to DIY Audio that way we won't end up paying two sets of Paypal fees.

The postage cost should be sent to me via paypal as well.

Once I have it confirmed by the moderators that the money has been received I will post the caps out.

Regards,
Andrew

Andrew does the offer have to include postage as well or will you charge postage at cost separate to the winning amount?

Any idea on postage cost to mainland UK?

I'll put in 30 + postage.

Maybe a specific currency or conversion rate should be stated, as 30 is about $US60.

Very sorry analogue_sa I completely missed your post. Looks like 50+ is needed, don't have that much pocket change
