Miflex paper in oil caps
« on: January 12, 2016, 09:55:29 AM »
Anyone know anything about these caps? They look like they're modelled on Dueland cast to me.

I don't like that they leak oil after a while though (Duelund Cast). This is one of the best and most expensive caps in the world so build quality should commensurate. Oh well, even the VSF got problem last time, I guess this is expected (?).
Not all that matters can be measured, not all that can be measured matters.

Those remind me of the caps Jimmy was playing with, same twisted lead outs...kinda.

Maybe a variation of them?

The ones he played with are sectional by the look, but otherwise, a similar look, more than others that i have seen.

I could be wrong.

I've just bought 0.1uf miflex caps for bypass purposes in my tube preamp. Will show pics when they are installed!

Interesting did you get the copper or aluminium. I love trying capacitors.
