If Ed or anyone else wants to try to make a cap from one of the sections of my
dismantled 2 uf 60 kv cap please contace me off the list (unless you have some
advice for all about trying such a thing). Each section is .18uf 60 kv. I got
some plastic pipe and plan to try rerolling part of the cap onto one pipe,
then place in a larger pipe full of oil but the pipe I got is black so now I
am worried it might contain carbon and decided not to use it until I can crank
up an x-ray xfmr. and test it for dielectric strength.
