  • Where can I get Leslie 122 capacitors in UK at a reasonable price?

    Can you recommend a site where I can get a set of caps (and resistors) for a 122 Leslie?

    I already bought the can cap from the USA and with the import duty and postage it almost doubled the sale price.

    I have been looking at a few UK sites for compatible capacitors. The problem is I am not an electrical engineer and I am in the early stages of gaining confidence and learning how to repair my old Leslies and Hammonds, so I am not sure what to get.

    I have had some fantastic help from people who view this forum which has enabled me to keep these machines running, so if you know anyone who supplies good parts at a good price, please let me know.

    Hello,

    At tube town we find a 4-section capacitor.
    https://www.tube-town.net/ttstore/Co...00-V::410.html
    But the values do not match exactly. So I prefer to buy a dual section F & T that can also be found at the same shop.

    And i wire 2 separate capacitor into the frame.

      I always buy the can capacitors from the US and the rest I get from CPC farnell in the UK. I make up a bill of materials from reading the schematic. Some capacitor values will be slightly different in modern format such as 50 uF caps become 47 uF for example. The important thing is that the voltage ratings are the same or higher.

        Yes, expensive to get here , but the TWG electrolytics do plug straight in to the socket. As my old Dad used to say when the school fees arrived "It's worth paying the extra few bob". Mind you, under his breath, he also whispered "I hope"...

          Thanks for the help. I will hunt about and try to get as close as possible to the original spec. If I find any interesting links I may to do a quick video of rebuild.

            I just received a can from Antique Electronic Supply. I read on their site that CP Manufacturing reproduces these cans to the original Mallory specs. What must be remembered about these vintage reproduction parts is that there is not a big market for them and therefore costs are higher. Same with TrekII equipment. It's important to support these niche industries IMHO.

              So that it is known, Hammond-Suzuki sells a cap kit to replace the can cap system but you need to be boned up on installing it.
