Default Re: Component restoration - how do YOU do it?

Hi Mike,

I think most of the resistors in your radio are quite simular in size to modern 1w resistors. I wonder if, simply, painting modern resistors with the old style markings using heat proof paint would create a satisfactory result?

As for capacitors I have often thaught about cutting open an old cap, scanning it into Photoshop, touching it up and then elongating one end so it could be wrapped around a pencil, or something, to produce a cover for modern caps

HTH
