I have read here that you can removed up to ten layers without any
measureable difference. I tried to unpot a jefferson once, and I soaked it
for almost five months and to my chagrin, about half the side of one
windings had the paper just crumble while soaking. It's a total mess I
intend to rewind.
Go ahead and remove layers till you get to a non burned layer. You probably
will only need to remove maybe 5-7 layers. I've done this with the two
Allanson 12/60ma I depotted and they work just fine. No noticeable
You might need to remove equal windings from both sides, to keep the
windings in phase.
