Hi Bill ya got me there ... no idea if it is that sensitive
i tried my luck with rolled caps it was expensive time consuming and
frustrating when it arced thru
then i went to plate caps it was expensive time consuming and
frustrating when it arced thru altho easier to fix just replace the
then i went to commercial caps it was expensive took 4 days to get
them and havent arc thru yet
imagine i could have had 3 sets of commercial caps :(
ahhhhhhhh but i had the experience of building them ;)
