I need a lot of axial caps for a project and they are pricy. I can get the same values in radial for less money but they don't fit. So I am thinking maybe do SMD and long leads. I can't imagine it not working. Has anyone ever tried. It would clear physical space as well as be less expensive. for example a cap value I need in axial is 6-7 dollars each VS it's SMD value at 2-3 each. Both known brands of caps.
