Well, Nick has a good idea...............only problem is, the price is too low. I will fill a box with electrolytics. Some NOS and some pulls. But the price will be based on current replacement costs. For example, a can with three sections will be a flat $10 each. This is far below the cost of new ones but should be a bargain for those who wish to use used caps. Regular tubular types would be $4 each..........again, a bargain when compared to prices asked for new ones.
All would be checked to ensure they are not shorted and would be tested for ESR to boot. Prices would vary based on individual capacitors and their ability to fit most of our BA gear. Odd-ball types would be $2-3 each.
I can fill at least two of the USPS flat-rate boxes and it would help clear out some of the junk here. Any one want some bargain priced used electrolytics???

Please send me your tired and poor....electrolytics. Seriously - all
you folks who believe in wholesale automatic replacement, please toss
your can-type electrolytics into one of those post-office flat rate
boxes - when it is full, let me know and I'll send you postage.
If you have some 450v military octal plug-in types, pull 'em out and
send them right away - I'll send you postage and nice new axial lead
ones as replacements.
I'm serious - I can't stand seeing good stuff tossed away willy-nilly
- and my experience is that 90% of cans are OK after reforming.
