Thanks to everyone who responded to my question about capacitance testers.
I'm actually more inclined to look for something that is of current
manufacture, that I can order on the web and have it here in a few
days, rather than something that I need to wait around to try to find
one on some want-ad or auction site, and then hope it works when it
gets here and have to fix it if it doesn't. That doesn't mean I
won't accept anything older, just that it's not my first choice... in
this case I'm looking for a tool and not another project.
It does seem like something that just measures capacitance isn't
necessarily the best choice, and that I should be able to apply some
voltage to it to check for leakage. Any modern-day capacitor testers
do that? Google hasn't been much help.
