Morning Andrew
Thanks for your reply. I still have not started the rewind, as I have too many other projects in the works at this time. A Westinghouse W780Y, a Marconi Model 51, and of course my DeForest Crosley 6D531. All for complete restoration. Sometimes, as they say, I bite off more than I can chew. Anyway am getting closer to doing the actual re-winding process.

I will set up my apparatus and take a few pictures to give you an idea of what and how my process and apparatus works.This may take a few days, but I wll get to it. I really like the mechanical counter I use, as it is very accurate at higher speeds. I do not usually operate at higher speeds, as I am afraid that, sometimes… “Haste makes Waste” I picked up this counter at Princess Auto, for around $20.00.

I would also appreciate knowing your method when it comes to determining the number of turns required for the B+ winding(s). I gotta get it right the first time around.
