Default Re: The Hall of Shame - Badcaps Photo Montage

Okay, here is my contribution. A few years ago I used a Motorola power supply that was from a retires base-station police band radio. I used it to build a 20amp power supply to run some of my radio gear.
I walked into the shack one day and I could smell something burning. I looked around but did not really see anything. No visible smoke. I noticed this power supply was off. I could tell this was where the stink was emanating from. I just took it out of service, set it aside and used another power supply.
I pulled it out and removed the cover today and this is what I found. It about burned my shack down. If it was not inside a metal case I built it might have!! Enjoy!
