|I have had probably several dozen player motors rewound over the years, and discovered that an electrician who really knows his stuff can double the power of an original old motor. I had this done in a large concert grand motor that has to run its pump at twice the speed of a baby grand pump. After an hour of continuous operation, the motor was just normally warm to the touch. I was very impressed. Then my electrician retired, and everybody else I know around here says it can't be done. We can, of course, increase the new wire diameter to the same overall diameter as the silk covered wire, but that isn't what this guy actually did. He took it a step further, I believe. So if anybody knows the trick he might have pulled, why not share it with us here? 'Twould be greatly appreciated.
