At least one of the caps in that auction is a Tek timing capacitor and I amtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
not sure Tek ever used oil in those or not. I never took one apart.
I have sometimes referred to "Black Beauty" caps as oil caps since the
actually have oil in them. Technically they may be "dry paper, treated with
oil" but there is so much oil in them that it often leaks out by the wire
seals and gets all over the outside of the cap and sometimes drips onto the
instrument chassis. It is hard for me to think of that as a "dry" cap . . .
