"Widow Maker" power supply caps
I have a line on about 25 electrolytic caps rated for 4,400 mfd at 400 VDC (450 v surge). They are a few years old in good condition. They are in a "computer style" can. Price is 15 bucks each. This is a killer deal, pun intended.  
Any interested parties send me an email and I will connect you with the seller.

That sounds familiar. The University of Texas regularly auctions surplus goods here in Austin, and in one of their auctions, they had several crates full of 4400uF/450V. They were used as a power source in the rail gun research that is going on at UT. I bet they're getting spread around in the surplus market now.

Might make a good storage cap for a cap discharge magnatizer

Well... I do know some guys that would practically salivate at the idea of 4400uF at 450V.  
Go take a look at Barry's" target="_blank">">Barry's Coilgun Design Site to see one of my other interests. I exchanged some emails with Barry on the design of the coils in a gun for maximum efficiency.  
I have many mottos. One of my favorites is "A monstrous mind is a toy forever."

You should be pretty well set for a while then. ;-)  
Check your email, BTW.
