Re: NEW? CDE caps

Original poster: "Mike" <mike.marcum@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

The 100 I ordered from RE were the leaded ones at 2.58 a pop, but got the lead free ones (942c20p15k-F) after about 8 weeks, which run 3.22 from them, at no extra cost. Luck I guess.

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?
