Plastic Variable Capacitor 60pf /141pf


SKU: VarCap141 Category: Tag:


These are small plastic ( Poly ) variable capacitors with dual 0-60pf and 0-141pf sections. You can connect the 60pf and the 141pf section together for 0-201pf if you want.

Screws and washers for the variable capacitor are available in two lengths: 5/32″ (4mm) and 3/16″ (5mm). The shaft and two mounting holes are both tapped metric M2.5.

This is the variable capacitor used in our Crystal Radio and MK484 radio kits.

CAUTION: The internal parts of the variable capacitor can be damaged easily if the screw enters the variable capacitor too far. Please check for clearance.

Is it polarized? I’m sorry if this is a stupid question but in the spooky tesla spirit radio project on Instructables it showed that it WAS polarized (even though it seems like polarized capacitors are rarely used in radio).
