Old enamelled wire?!
Anyone else here tried using old enamelled wire when re-winding their CDRom?
I've got some that is "brand new" in as much as it has never been used, but is at least 20 years old [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] problem is I cant wind the stuff without the enamel cracking off. Just wanted to see if this was a problem due to age or because I'm doing something wrong!!!
It is quite thick for the application - 25 swg and I can *just* get 15 turns on the motor, but should have thought it should be able to wind that tight!
