This series of short YouTube videos shows CE's manufacturing process using original vintage Mallory machines kept going by their in house mechanic, who also appears to be the sole labourer in this very labour-intensive process:

Is graphing paper still a good insulator in electrolytics? I get it's the aluminium oxide that does most of the work but using paper just sounds a bit outdated to me. Suppose I'm just used to paper caps haha

In the videos they say that they use kraft paper:

QUOTE: Kraft paper or kraft is paper or paperboard (cardboard) produced from chemical pulp produced in the kraft process. Sack kraft paper (or just sack paper) is a porous kraft paper with high elasticity and high tear resistance, designed for packaging products with high demands for strength and durability.
