C1998 Tear Down

Postby Brian Wallace » Mon Sep 01, 2008 2:27 pm

I'm doing a tear down on a late 60's C1998 for Neil and I thought I would share some on the process to show what's involved.

My precious OT what have you done to it :cry: :cry: :cry: :lol:

Great to see it all stripped and cleaned up.

Do you actually pull the coils apart or pinch the packing for a rewind?

WHAT!!!!! You didn't want it taken down? :shock:

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I pull the layers apart one by one and document the wind. I'll snap some more pictures as I go.

OK, so it's been a while. I moved and lost the USB cable to the camera and had to go buy a new one. Today's tip....DO NOT go to Best Buy and try to buy this kind of thing. I thought I was going to have to call 911. :evil:

Here is a shot of the first layer after removing the outer wrap. Notice the use of masking tape. I just love this old junk. :mrgreen:

Hey Brian. I may be getting ahead of this post a bit, but do you actually "clean" the old Core laminations?
I've heard that it's "better" if the laminations are a bit oxidized or rusty even. (and I've heard the opposite too! :? )

I remove the lacquer and nothing else. You do not want to polish the lams. :wink:

This thread is just to show you an example of what the old transformers look like inside. I won't be documenting the build part of it. :cry:

I will have a couple of more pictures coming though. :wink:
