I need a few .01 uF 50v Disk Capacitors and they don't seem to be available from RS. I know Daddy_Duncan has used them for a few projects, anyone else and where are you getting them. I've found them online but was looking for a store where I could pic them up in a more timely manner.

If you have access to any used cct boards, or electronic equipment, you can probably find some, as they are quite common. If you cant find any marked .01, look for ones marked 103 mfd. This means 10 plus (3) zeros, which gives 10000mfd, and mfd in capacitance is 10 to the minus 6, so you would have to divide 10000 by 1,000,000, which comes out to .01 mfd.
or in other words .01 mfd is the same as the newer ones marked 103mfd, it is just another way to print the values on them. You might want to check in the stores for capacitors marked 103, it is the new system, you might have been overlooking them
