Re: replacing 475 psu electrolytics

Here's the pattern I use:

I use long bare #12 wires, about 10 inches long with standoffs formed
at the PC end. That way I can thread the new cap into position
without taking the entire scope apart.

Works great as long as you do not damage the board while taking the old caps out.

I want to replace electrolytics in my 475 and not to worried about keeping the old cans. I have seen reference to using a "daughter" board to make the grounding through A9 with a modern radial lead mounted on top of the daughter board. Sounds quite neat and was looking for advice.
