    I have restuffed electrolytics and paper caps for decades in radios I consider historical, very valuable, or both but still want to use them. I have also duplicated several old style carbon resistors. A few customers have also requested cap restuffing for something as mundane as an AA5 that has been in the family since new and cost is no object.

    I have not done it in any amps yet as specific or universal replacement power supply boards are so common and trying to duplicate the cache of say a Clipperton L, SB-200, etc just doesnt excite me. Now if one of my amps becomes highly valuable I may reconsider:eek:
