capacitor

Post by davewakey » 28 Jan 2020 13:47

I need to replace my 0,33uf 250v capacitor as my table goes backwards, I live in BC Canada and was wondering where I can get one from or what is a suitable replacement, thanks.

FWIW Lee’s Electronics on Fraser Street is where one must go for parts in Vancouver.

Main Electronics is 2 or 3 years gone now which is a pity. But Lee’s has been fairly good for the routine components - capacitors, resistors and such. Not as good for belts and lamp bulbs.

Lee's is excellent compared to my local options. I was just there last week; they were really helpful and they're definitely targeting the hobbyist market. If you're not in Vancouver, don't bother; $20 flat rate shipping kills the deal.

If you're near an Interior Electronics branch this is probably something they'd have in stock. They'll also order from DigiKey on your behalf for $5 rather than the $9 shipping DigiKey charges. They're prices aren't great, but they're not exorbitant either.

If you're not in a hurry, you can order from Tayda Electronics. I've ordered from them in the past, but you need to rack up a $5 minimum and the shipping is slow. They're cheap but less sketchy than ordering from AliExpress.
