||Re: Pickup Potting question?????|
I do not know if a unit created in 1742 is so modern new world fandangled unit of measurement, but I find imperial units pretty annoying
how can I find pickup covers for 50mm and 52mm bobbins when the covers are 1-15/16" and 2-1/16"?
so I can compute it, there is no problem, but these numbers do not match well

It's called sarcasm all over the world Lucas and I'm firmly fed up with having to convert Imperial to metric and visa versa BTW.
Just get the candle wax and a thermometer with a bain marie set up. You'll be fine.

I think it was obvious...ignore it. Anybody that doesn't have the balls to say what's on their minds should just be ignored.

I use parafin from the canning section of a grocery store. The addition of 20% beeswax just makes the wax a little less brittle if I remember right.
My rig is a cheap little coffee percolator I got from Goodwill for $2. It has a reostat that I set at minimum and then plug it into a Variac set for 55vac.
These settings are meaningless except to me, but the setup goes to 150 degrees and luckily, doesn't vary at all. I've done dozens of pickups and no plastic bobbins have warped or melted.
I have a couple thermometers we had at the food manufacturing plant I used to work for. (It closed a couple years ago.)
I've gotten less than full potting on a couple pickups and have been thinking of coming up with a vacuum rig that may help with penetration.
