Anybody require any 10uF 35V Tants?

    I seem to have found quite a stash of Mil-Spec (means nothing) AVX 10uF 35V tants. These were 'saved' from the bin due to them having been rejected from a production line due to what looks like the lead forming machine catching them at one shoulder. Absolutely no impact on use but when you're building for the US you tend to play it safe....

    Does anyone have any use for these anymore?

    Hi Jimmy,

    I’d be interested in taking some from you. How many is “a stash” and how much are you selling for?

    Right, let me try to get an image up of the 'damage' first.....

    (That took a while)

    If you look at the right hand cap and its left shoulder you can see a slight indentation from the forming tool and likewise on the right shoulder on the left one. Will not affect fit, from or function and for all I know there are millions out there like this.

    Ah, I'll see what I have left in the bag. I swapped the majority last week but did keep some for myself so I'll see what I can accommodate.
    Bear with me though as I haven't managed to get them out to Jo Sharp or Mynamemynaim due to a lack of open Post Offices and large letter stamps around here!!

    Glad to hear Jo. I'm currently trying to get a few back from my nephew who wanted them to sell on ebay for everyone else. If I am successful I'll let you know!!
