Item details

Another casualty of the 21st century world are simple, rugged, reliable parts that do what they do without fuss or drama. Once you could find mica compression variable caps in tons of gear. They were everywhere - until they weren't anymore.

This Arco (Electromotive) 313M is only 0.85" by 0.95" but the capacitance range is a whopping 1000 pf and 2155 pf at a maximum voltage of 1 KV. If you're not familiar with compression trimmer they are very simple; They have a set of metal plates separated by sheets of mica. As you tighten the screw it brings the stack of interleaved mica/metal closer and this increased capacitance. If you loosen the screw the reverse happens.

You can do this from either side of the part.

I do not have the brass nut used to panel mount these, but hey I found you the trimmer, you can go and find them if you need them.

SPECIAL NOTICE TO FOREIGN BUYERS
1) USPS rates, while still far below those of FedEx and UPS, are quite expensive even for small and light items. You can go to usps.com to get shipping costs.

2) Do NOT ask me to falsify customs declarations.

3) I test everything I sell and I pack VERY carefully but I cannot control how items are handled when they go through customs, for that reason there are NO RETURNS on VACUUM TUBES shipped outside the US.

4) USPS considers Items made of glass to be "inherently fragile" so most of the time they will not pay claims on damaged vacuum tubes. They will however pay claims for items that are lost.
