Default Re: Ferranti TC1004. Baptism of fire.

I repaired many Ferranti/Ekco lopt like this. I made a former out of wood and built up the case with glass fibre mat and resin. The former was made 4 times as long as a standard lopt one and so when one was needed I just sawed one off. The difficult part was reusing the connection points so corona didn't ensue. Never had one fail. Peter.
