    Thanks for your thoughts. I will respond after I get back home from work. Your point about over-cooked enamel is especially intriguing, as I have not accounted for the case where magnet wire is being taken well beyond its recommended temperature limit but not immediately failing. (It's a case we avoid by design in engineering where reliability is one of the objectives.)

    I am in Oakland, with a DL650A (2007) and a shop manual and a whole bunch of tools. Holler if you need to borrow a tool and want a 2nd (non-expert) opinion. 510-482-4306 landline
