I had two coils , one with a good box and a bad sec.winding , and the other a bad box and a good sec.winding . So I switch the good winding to the good box. It takes some time but now I have a good coil
Nice work Anthonie
Looks like you dropped that first box off the Sydney bridge.
I see that you have varnished the coil box. It looks good. I have considered doing that, but never have. Although I have waxed a few so that they would slide in and out of the box a little easier. Have you tried the varnished coil(s) in a box? Do they slide in and out easily? Do they stick to each other?
Mike : I use boiled Linseed ,But on the picture the linseed was still wet,so it looks varnish.
Great job and thanks for posting the photos. It is a great reminder that many of us can learn to do different jobs from the past. None of us need to learn them all and as long as some folks continue to teach others the cars will always be able to keep running.

Great idea, Toon. Like Hap says, as long as some of us do various jobs, we can keep these cars going for the next generations.
What is your tar pouring set up? Any more photos of that?
Yet another shining example of the motto from the shop I used to work at: "If it's broken and out of warranty I've got nothing to lose". I like mine shiny too. Usually some wipe on Poly and flat black for the top. I have a nicely finished oddball on my desk that has Ford on the big side of the case (non-removeable side) instead of right at the top. Never fails to interest folks. Nice work Anth.
Joseph ; Here are two pictures of my tar pouring set up .
Suggestion: I put tape over the grooved area and along the top edges. After I pore in the tar I remove the tape and don't have to do a lot of clean up. If I don't, no matter how careful I am, the tar just seems to find it's way into those grooves.
