I plan on doing a similar rewind on the coils. Modern magnet wire with a cotton rope covering. I sourced some double cotton covered 18 awg but just doesn't look the same as they came originally. Original almost looks rope covered.I just sent you a PM about this. Kim just answered the question I was wondering about. He used 28awg. What looks like rope is rope, no wire in it, It is just a protective covering. I think you are going to need smaller AWG wire. If 23awg will work I have a LOT of it and would be happy to ship you some.
