Re: Polyvaricon Source Wanted

There's also this one at Mike's:  https://www.mikeselectronicparts.com/product/variable-capacitor-266pf/  It's used in this small transmitting loop: https://k1fm.us/2015/07/k1fm-mini-magnetic-loop-2-0/  and has a 3d printed version (made by someone else) here:  https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4036000 

I mentioned the loop before, when I posted the ebay link for the cap I bought. But I got a request for the Thingiverse page as well, so there you go.

I've followed a few links from my web searches and they lead to either caps that are not the small polyvaricons, items that are out of stock, or suppliers half way around the world. I'd rather not pay more for shipping that for the caps themselves!

There have been several positive suggestions made for Polyvaricon sources on the GQRP reflector this month.
I'd suggest you look at their archives, or else post your need on their site.

The response to my question about Polyvaricon  caps has been good and I
really appreciate the offers to dig through junk boxes, etc. to try and
get my the parts. I did some more searching this afternoon and found an
eBay seller who had what I wanted who was in the US and didn't want me
to order 50 of them! I wasn't opposed to ordering from the UK or
elsewhere, I'm just not very patient once I get started and a lot of
places I found indicated my order probably wouldn't have arrived before
the end of August.

Thanks once again everyone!

I've always just salvaged them from old AM radios.

I bought four from this source:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dual-Gang-AM-FM-Variable-Capacitor-266pF-X-2-and-20pF-X-2-500pF-Total/113059337104 

They're your typical AM/FM radio devices. I found a small transmitting loop on Thingiverse that uses them, so I bought some. I printed up the enclosure and planetary gearing for it, but haven't had the time to fiddle with it and build the darned loop. That'll probably be a winter project.
