While I wait for my precision caps to arrive, I can finish rest of the tasks, replace the last few 0. You can login to do that! Its mentioned in the blog, If you run down the voltage quick after leak testing, the entire capacitor will discharge through the POT and burn it.

Especially the V 0. You can see the first light up, after so many years, still on 60V power.

The power factor tester too is also quite handy. Overall a great piece of hardware!

I have to disclose, I learned this from U-tube videos. Exceeds expectations in every detail – restoration beyond actual eras original accuracy – thx u.
