|So, attempting to rewind my very first fan (only 2 coils so think I can do it ). My questions: 1) when connecting the two coils together, was planning on pigtailing-solder-heat shrink-friction tape and then tuck it between the nomex folds. Is that the correct way? Should I make sure varnish gets down around it?; 2) I plan on heat shrinking about 6 inches of each of the other coil wires (to main cord and switch), crimp and solder the connections and heat shrink...how do you heat shrink 24ga to 18ga? May sound dumb but the difference in size seems to preclude a tight shrink on the small end... should I add a couple layers on the small end first?
If anyone knows of a good video or tutorial please let me know - haven't seen one that shows this part of it.
