Why should you use these caps?

All Luxe PIO Caps are now handmade one at time, with the correct materials and same technique like the ol' ones build!

I have a large assortment of tubs, cartons and cakes of old waxes, rosins and pitches that I use to make my various coatings and potting solutions.
In the interest of proper Mojo, I make sure that every cap I make uses some raw materials from the appropriate era. My recipes follow the same ones used by the original manufacturers, with some changes. For example: I do not use Dykanol or any other chemicals in my capacitors. Most capacitors made before 1956 were coated with a blend of pitch and petroleum jelly, this is the nasty sticky stuff that radio guys hate, I make this coating with pitch and beeswax. It looks the same, but it doesn’t get all over the place.
