  1. Think the Macintosh 128K, 512K & Plus motherboards don't need a recap? Time to Think Different. It's been 35+ years since the debut of the 128K & 512K, folks. Fluid-filled capacitors don't have eternal life. Properly chosen solid Tantalum, on the other hand, will last the life of the board. My video below shows recapping of the keyboard too. PLEASE watch on YouTube so you can expand the text description under the video, as it contains Mouser Carts and important info, especially for you Mac Plus owners. https://youtu.be/vz2NGF5Vuao
  2. 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.
