>> 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,
>> Bill, KB3DKS/1
