- Reaction score
I would be curious to know how long reformed 50+ year old capacitors will last in service.
I would reform them correctly with DC as they're out now, I wouldn't put them back in the amp just to reform them with an AC Variac.
Well yes to effective and yes to measure progress, but it may take longer, but much less work than using the amp to provide the DC if the cap's aren't already in situ.Rookie question, but is this direct method more effective than the in-circuit variac method, or just faster/easier to measure progress? All caps are downstream of the rectifier(s), so ultimately receiving DC current, correct?
