Are these axial or radial?

The electros are axial . The others are a mix of axial and red caps.
The red caps don't stand out as much. Leads are fairly long.

My comment here is that it pays to look at what you have before you order. I will not put a 450V cap anywhere where there is a #80 / 5Y3 or any rectifier that behaves like them.

Red & green caps are not always the best choice to replace an axial cap as the leads are often too short due to the design of the cap. Lead dress is important; so the idea is to keep them as close to the metal work as is possible. But remember no hard & fast rule, it works both ways.

Often if you leave the leads long (heat) an RB electrolytic of today is one that can be very neatly, mounted on the valve socket. Sleeving component leads, where there is a risk of shorting, is important.

Yeah there is no issue with the length of these caps and they are all 630 volters. The yellow caps are getting hard to find in the quantities I need , but if I had a regular number of customers willing to purchase then I could justify buying minimum numbers of 2000. But at this stage having them just sitting is not good policy.

In fact I will always look for the 600 volt electros and keep the prices down as much as I can so it makes it easier for members to look at using these for a bit of insurance. My price is half that of the Canadians even before you look at the currency conversion and "THEY ARE THE SAME BRAND "

Also if you want to look up ebay. My user name is MAGANDALALAINE , my 450 volt electros are going cheap as I have no use for them and please pay heed to Marcc in where he says don't put them any where near a #80 or a 5Y3.
