I am thinking of rewinding an old microwave oven transformer to drive a
car amp to produce some bass in my bedroom. The amp will continuously
draw about 30A and will draw a surge current of 150A. I was thinking of
using copper wire to rewind the transformer but getting copper wire in
the required thickness was going to be a problem not to mention working
with the stuff. What I thought I would do is use the wire from some old
car jumper cables (with the insulation left on) and rewind the
transformer using the jumper cables. Is there any problem with using
multicore cable to rewind a transformer? I am aware of the fact that
the insulation might melt...

 Hmm, ?

Real Programmers Do things like this.
