Heresy 1 Cap replacement video

Recommended Posts

So I bought some sonicaps from Crites the other day and I figured I'd make a short video of the process of swapping them out. I'm sure everyone knows how to do it but you never know who might not..

In the I don't know if it matters category. I had used those white plastic screw down clips for capacitors for a while. Snug them down with cable ties tight enough to prevent movement. One day I went back to one that had been sitting around for a while and cut the tie. Looking at the capacitor I noticed dents pressed in the side from that clip. I don't know how fragile poly caps are so I stick them down with silicone now. Means I have to let them sit for some time  before continuing but I also don't have to worry that what have I done might damage the cap. On boards with that hot melt glue often there is enough there that you take your hot air gun and heat it up and your new capacitors will stick to it just fine. I don't clean off old hot melt anymore I reuse it.

It's definitely worth checking on in the future. Thanks for the heads up.
