Re: Nice PC board for MMC capacitors

Original poster: "Harold Weiss" <hweiss@xxxxxxxxxx>

Hi Terry,

Did you get any of the STK caps?  I was wondering if you did any destructo
tests on them.  Being a little smaller in diameter, and about the same
length and value, they would be great for a nice compact board.  As I'm
getting ready to build the MMC for a 4" 12/60 coil, I'd be very interested
in a PC board version.  I'm surprized Dan didn't beat you to it.
