Chris,  I'm impressed someone here found out how to use Mouser's site to order something. I like Justradios.com due to the excel spreadsheet used to order, and it seems the 105-degree C electrolytics at 450 volts are priced within reason.

Ha!   This was EXACTLY my experience when ordering from Mouser's site a while back.  I eventually punted and bought elsewhere. To be fair, they seem to have EVERYTHING and for generally good prices, but boy is that website challenging...

The learning curve is a bit steep but if I can figure it out, anybody can.  Just stock up on patience first (jumbo size).  Once the light goes on, you'll wonder why it ever seemed hard.

I've always used F&T electrolytics from AES, never had a bad one, and they work great.
My consoles:
1939 Zenith AM console 8S359
1949 RCA Victor AM/FM "dual phonograph" console 9W105
1958 RCA Victor New Orthophonic HI-FI phonograph console SHF-6
1950 Magnavox Wedgewood AM/FM phonograph console CR-216
