Re: NEW? CDE caps

The last batch of cap I got were lead free and the smaller size. I could not tell any difference in performance from the new caps. I do like the smaller size. They make for a lot more compact MMC.

The "new" caps are fine. They changed the specs too from the old but all for the better. They are using a better polymer now so the temp specs are higher and they wind them a bit better so the size is smaller. Poly caps are still evolving so they change a bit now and then, but nothing to worry about. They are or will go lead free soon and that will raise the price about 10%.

I received a few days ago some CD caps from Dr. R , quick service and good looking caps­Thanks Dr. R . I started to lay then on my pre-drilled Lexan sheet used to mount them on and they looked a little small from the spec sheet I had downloaded from CDE. Not a big difference but to a machinist trained eye I could see it. Has any one tested the new smaller caps?
