Re: 2nd life for a 575 after resting for 30+ years in the attic #photo-notice


 

My understanding of the paper tubes over the metal can capacitors is that this was done when the can was not at ground potential. The cardboard tube is meant to insulate the metal can, either to prevent shorting to nearby components, or to prevent people from touching the non-grounded cans and getting a shock.
