Default Higher value oil capacitors?

Hi

A while back (Aug 04) an Ebay vendor was selling 100uF ASCs.

Does anyone know a current source of 100 uF oil capacitors, ideally min 450 VDC?

I recall some Cornell Dubilier caps are oil caps, but haven’t had success with Newark’s search engine.

Russian military from??

Thanks

Richard

I really like the vendor and caps. That particular model of ASC is the only oil motor run I've found which uses non-magnetic terminals.

Sharon at Midori Meadows Capacitor and Craft Farm on eBay sells just what you are looking for here: http://stores.ebay.com/Capacitor-and-Craft-Farm

I bought some of these ASC 100uF caps from Sharon which are good for about 600Vdc, and sound great as cathode bypass caps in my latest amplifier. They are of course huge...

Sharon is very personable, and very customer oriented. I recommend Midori Meadows highly..

It happened! I've been waiting years for a one-stop capacitors-and-avocado-oil shopping solution!

Great, maybe he sells chips too: Bolognese flavor or silicon?

The caps are great, can't vouch for the avocado oil. (yet)

I bought some 250uF met poly caps from them in a fit of electrolytaphobia.

I've bought and used from them as well. No complaints.

Now, they are not the 100uF 1000VDC ASC jobbies I had custom made, but for most "normal" projects they work WONDERFULLY!

Avocado - oil... Hmm, I like avocodos! They are great in a salad

Just adding to the praise, I have also had great experience with the 'Capacitor Farm'! I've purchased 40uF and 100uF caps from them (both rated 370VAC IIRC) and have used them in three different amps with excellent results.
