I’m happy to announce that starting soon, I’ll be offering professionally restuffed vintage capacitors for historically accurate repair and restoration of your antique radio! In my rebuild process, the old capacitor is carefully stripped of the old wax coating and the innards carefully removed. The body of the capacitor is lightly cleaned and a new high voltage axial lead film capacitor is installed in the cylinder. The ends are then filled with a medium density clay filler to provide stability, followed by a fresh coat of bee’s wax. The end product is nearly indistinguishable from one in original condition, perfect for performing a historically accurate repair of a valuable antique radio.
If you’re interested, leave a comment! Pricing is expected to be $3-5 per capacitor depending on type and value.
