> Hello,
> I just stripped out a basket case VK II transmitter for rebuilding.
> Most of the transformer leads are brittle and even carefully removing them 
> thru the chassis hole, I can feel the rubber inner jacket breaking up.
> I would expect to replace the wires near as I can get to the windings.
> The plate transformer will need good HT wire.
> I have quite a bit of different sizes of silver teflon.
> for most of the windings but not quite sure what to do about the HT wires.
> This is a project transmitter, not a restoration.
>  Suggestons? Sources of suitable wire in an affordable put up. I have 
> other large transformers with the same problem as well.
> Thanks,
