Wallpaper-Paste Gel Capacitors

Original poster: "Jolyon Vater Cox by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <jolyon-at-vatercox.freeserve.co.uk>

I would be interested to know if anyone other than myself uses/ has used saline
wallpaper-paste gel capacitors for TC work. Basically these are the same as SW
capacitors but the gelling action of the wallpaper paste should make them less
likely to spill and a layer beeswax over the top works like oil in a normal SW
cap to suppress creepage.

Has anyone any experience of the like? What are advantages/ disadvantages of
this form of capacitor construction?
