Here is the mki2 that I purchased from TAW on the west coast. I searched my gmail and didn't realize that I purchased these back in 2011. So they have years on them.

If that is tin all around the casing you can make a nice short circuit...

That cap is made in 1971. It is way over its useful life. Resins have been improved thankfully.

That's why I avoid MP capacitors .
In the past WIMA made paper capacitors in their Tropydur and Durolit lines. All of them most probably have become leaky in the meantime and should be replaced if found in any old gear. But their recent film-foil (FK*) and metallized foil (MK*) series are out of question.
Best regards!

asuslover,

I reached them via email at sales@tawelectronics.com
I ordered 36 of .1uF/100V of the MKI2 at $0.242 each. However, that was 2011 pricing when they still had stock. I see they show them listed on their website as obsolete parts but you can contact them to see if they have any leftover stock.
