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
