Default Marcon caps

Who made these back in the day? Pulled a good number of them from a 1979 Toshiba 19" TV set that checked far below their values (One of the 22/160 caps barely even registered 1nF!). Some that I pulled, checked almost double their values.

Default Re: Marcon caps

Marcon was the name of the company, and their quality was in the same class as UCC, Nichicon and Rubycon. Nippon Chemicon (NCC/UCC) bought Marcon some 20 years ago.

Power Supplies should be boring: No loud noises, no bright flashes, and no bad smells.

Where might is right
There is no right.

To kill personal responsibility, initiative or success, punish it by taxing it. To encourage irresponsibility, improvidence, dependence and failure, reward it by subsidizing it.
