CapacitorsCapacitors are passive devices that are used in almost all electrical circuits for rectification, coupling and tuning. Also known as condensers, a capacitor is simply two electrical conductors separated by an insulating layer called a dielectric. The conductors are usually thin layers of aluminum foil, while the dielectric can be made up of many materials including paper, mylar, polypropylene, ceramic, mica, and even air. Electrolytic capacitors have a dielectric of aluminum oxide which is formed through the application of voltage after the capacitor is assembled. Characteristics of different capacitors are determined by not only the material used for the conductors and dielectric, but also by the thickness and physical spacing of the components.
Strain Relief - Nylon, 0.12" x 0.22" Wire (SPT-1)
Two conductor, nylon, .12" x .22" wire (SPT-1). Protects the lifeline of your electric/electronic products by absorbing the forces of pull, push, and twist that may be exerted on flexible power cords. Securely anchors, insulates, and protects cable at panel entry points.
Most Often Needed Radio Diagrams, Volume 1
by M. N. BeitmanRadio Diagrams and Servicing Information from 1926 to 1938. Shows circuit diagrams for 600 of the most commonly found radios of that time. A valuable resource for restorations.
Kit - Pine Board Wireless Transmitter
Now your antique radio can play some of the same programs it did when it was new! With your cassette tape player, phonograph or high output microphone, this one tube transmitter becomes a miniature AM broadcasting station, patterned after the 1939 Zenith model S-7000 Wireless Record Player. Assemble on a 4 inch x 6.5 inch board. All parts and instructions included.
Radio, Wireless Telephone and Wireless Telegraph Equipment
High quality reprint of early (1920s) Montgomery Ward catalog of wireless equipment. 32 pages of radios, kits, tubes and books as available 70 years ago. Sorry, you can't order from this catalog! 0.2 lbs, 7" x 9.5", 33 pages.
Capacitor - Peavey, 55V, 4700µF, Axial Lead
Peavey 4700 µF @ 55V polarized electrolytic capacitor with axial leads. 7/8" diameter x 2" length.
Capacitor - 1500V, .1µF, Oil
Non-inductive polyester and oil caps, these film capacitors use oil-soaked polyester as di-electric material and are smooth and natural in sound.
Tube Base - 4-Pin, Ceramic
4 pin, ceramic tubes base, 1 ¼" diameter - 1 1/16" tall.
Capacitor - MusiCap, 100V, Film & Foil Polypropylene
Critical loudspeaker crossovers deserve to have a transparent product specific to the application. Speaker MusiCaps, with their thicker leads, are a revelation in well-designed crossover networks. While a fully MusiCap-ed crossover is supreme, just installing MusiCaps in the tweeter circuit will reveal much additional detail and nuance. Many prominent high-end loudspeaker manufacturers have been using MusiCaps in their top models for years.
