  1. An impromptu live recapping Old electronic devices with surface mount electrolytic capacitors are often affected by capacitor leakage. Watch Bruce of Branchus Creation muddle through the recapping of a Macintosh IIvi. New to recapping? Watch the man and learn some cool stuff. Enjoy!
  2. So this is not about the retrobrite that the 8-bit guy completed, that turned out very nice.

  3. Dear Forum members I am coming to you with a concern. I've never had to remove a tantalum cap before and am concerned that they may blow up (explode) if I expose them to too much heat, more so when desoldering. Is this a general concern? I do know that I shouldn't be exposing anything to more than 3 seconds of continuous iron heat but I just want to understand if there are safety concerns that would absolutely require I wear googles. I get kind of spooked by little things that go pup so… I will be using a TS100 soldering iron which can go up to 400°C.
