Picked up a beaten & mangled rhythm chief, I've a feeling someone pulled it apart to investigate why it wasn't working but mutilated it in the process. I can see at least 1 break in the wire - almost too thin to photograph but the loose ends are sticking out on the right. Could these be rejoined? Perhaps twisted together or stuck to copper tape then a solder iron used to burn away the insulation? Advice appreciated. Alternatively, if rewound - due to the unusual configuration of the bobbin Im not sure what sort of DIY rig I could use. Would need the initial 4 pole bobbin winding, then the additional 2 pole added to complete. Does anyone know what wire thickness this is or the best wire would be if I was to replace/rewind. Perhaps 45AWG / 0.045mm - would original stock enamelled wire perform the same as the more modern 'solderable coated' wire.
