I have a couple of questions on capacitors. The first is a list, or in other words is there a lost for the most used caps on old radios? Most of my old radios goes from the 30s to the 50s. There was one that was used a lot was it .047mf? I remember seeing it in almost every radio I redid. The other is who sells good caps at a good price? I would like to find a place that sells in quantities and maybe gives discounts. I am getting back into them after almost 20 years and everything has changed. It will probably be this fall before I take the first one apart but I want some parts on hand. I have a large stock of other parts but not many caps.

.05/.047 seems to show up the most. .1, .2, .01, .02, .001, .005 round it out pretty good for the most common ones I think. I get mine from Joe:
