Re: MMC Caps
MMC! MMC! MMC! Having done both flat plate, and mmc caps their is no
doubt in my mind that MMC's are the way to go. It took me a long time and
about twice the money to make a flat plate cap. I still have it and it
should still work, but the MMC is one 10th the size and weight and took
about 6 hours to make between doing other things. No Oil no cutting of foil
and easy to reconfigure for different voltages. hope this helps.
