By request: I made a smaller version of the original cap board. This one
holds 25mm diameter caps...
This is a blank PCB to mount one or two snapmount electrolytic capacitors, up
to 25mm in diameter. The typical use is for power supply filter capacitors in
a tube amplifier or preamp project.
I got tired of figuring out how to clamp or glue common snap-mount capacitors
designed for PCB mounting) in a tube amplifier chassis using
point-to-point wiring. So, I designed this little PCB.
The PCB has space for two caps, that can be used independently, or easily
jumpered to connect them in series. There are spots for bleeder resistors (or
voltage equalizing resistors if the two caps are connected in series) that
can accommodate small 2W resistors.
It mounts to the chassis via 4 0.125" holes in the corner with M2.5 or #4
screws. Screws and standoffs areNOT included.
This auction is for one PCB only, no parts or anything else is included.
