There's no such thing as "5 radios to recap." If you have that many now, you'll have more later, and there are certain caps you'll need a lot of (resistors such as 100K also). Do as Norm says and start stocking up.

You can probably find schematics on your radios on Nostalgia Air resources and compile a list of components. Old radios should have a fresh set of capacitors and carbon resistors. So, yes, makes sense to buy in bulk with a few spares for oft used values. Jameco and Just Radios are hobby friendly sources. Many others also mentioned on these forums.
