    I went to main city library and only 8 books on electrical anything
    and nothing on coil winding or motors.
    Any recommendations on practical teechnique ?

    electronic hints and repair briefs , schematics/manuals list on

    Find a bigger city.

    'Audels' has it's faults but will get you started.

  3. Motor coil rewinding is not recommended for a one-of repair! If you are
    really serious, please know that you will make a substantial investment in
    tools, materials and personal knowledge.

    Yes, I have rewound stator coils and will never do it again! I have never
    done a wound armature and know enough to avoid even thinking about it.
