As the subject suggests, I'd like to buy a recap kit for the Macintosh 
Classic analog board (power supply) model 630-0525. I'd think there 
would be more than one source. And I might use them for other analog Mac 
repairs. Does anyone know of a reliable vendor for capacitor kits?

I see "console5.com" offers one kit for $20 + ship, a plausible amount 
for sourcing all the parts of the right size and specs for a few sets. 
They have other kits too. But has anyone dealt with them? Asking "the 
google" comes up with "review sites" that say awful things; but those 
could be scam-sites.

Ebay? nope, except for a Russian site. why order overseas?

Web search only yields a few recapping services, someone in Australia, 
and then some radio recapping services (https://hayseedhamfest.com/ 
looks good but not for Mac computers).

If I were a part of some vintage Mac discussion groups, maybe I'd find 
something. But searching them from the inside or the outside is difficult.

So: I did some homework to find a vendor. These are my results. Maybe 
Mac owners just order individually from Digikey and hope they get parts 
that fit well?  - regards, Herb
