I was gifted a 50 year old Mac 1700 receiver last summer and finally got around to checking it out. It plays and sounds pretty good but it’s a ticking time bomb for cap replacement.
Debated running away or going down the restoration rabbit hole. Answered by ordering a recap kit so rabbit hole here I come. Have always gotten by with wicking braid and a solder sucker, but there are a ton of caps crammed into tight spots on this thing and an affordable desoldering setup might make this project more fun.
Any recommendations appreciated. Thanks
