Not directly arduino related, but I've bought a nixie power supply: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250747824418&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_3846wt_905

The big cylinder on the far left (capacitor?) is dented.  Is that going to make a difference?

Is it dented like in the picture or dented like it's obvious something hit it pretty hard? If the latter, you might want to consider replacing it - a damaged capacitor *might* lead to a fancy exploding capacitor.

Dented like proper squashed.

I'll replace it, thanks.
