Well, aside from the obvious reasons, it’s probably not the greatest idea to replace one old-age failed capacitor with another old-age capacitor!  ;)

Power supply filter cap on a TRS-80 Model 4.  So where do you guys go for parts?  I’m not looking to stock up, just need some one-offs (probably the X caps.)  Do you just go to Mouser or Digi-Key?  Does anyone have spares?
