What do vintage toasters measure?

Postby (Thesisinbold) » Thu Jul 20, 2017 4:16 pm

Hello,

I have a 1991 Rose Morris 1998 (3 pickups) with toasters on the way. I'm sure these are the "hot" ones, right?

What should these things measure so I can unwind them?

thanks!

Vintage specs on these are right around 8K Ohm.

Dont mess with them! People love those hot toasters. You can easily buy new scatterwounds.

+1 They don't make those anymore, so there is a limited supply of them in the world. You might want to see if anyone woould trade a pair of scatterwounds for them (post a for trade thread in the For Sale section).

+2. You can probably sell them for as much as it would take to get new "scatterwound" toasters from the boutique on the RIC forum.

Please forgive my inability to use the proper technical nomenclature, but I think all of us deduced that I was referring to a Geiger counter
