I have not heard that caution but have experienced the same effect. Pair of 
4cx250's in a 2m amp with a horseshoe tank. Melted the solid nylon shaft that 
tuned the plate cap. Home brew of course.JimW7OUU Sent via the Samsung Galaxy

Tank Circuits For decades I’ve avoided using nylon hardware in the vicinity of 
an RFtank circuit because I believed nylon was prone to absorbing RF 
andburning. I don’t know how or when I came to learn this information,but now 
I’m wondering if I’m wrong. Normally I use  brass hardware.Had anyone else 
heard this caution?Tnx,Jim W8ZRSent from my
