Re: Oil caps

Well, that depends on what you mean.   large flat plates separated sufficiently
in oil would be great,  but very bulky.   Usually the oil in commercial caps
are there for corona suppression and there is some other dielectric between the
plates.   You would also have to make sure that dielectric is not Mylar.
