Good idea, but these are likely to be the high voltage (275VAC) X2 caps.  I’ll know more when I disassemble tomorrow, and I’ll definitely check Microcenter!

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?
