I cut off the damaged portion of the wire and spliced on new wire and quick disconnect connectors. I used Teflon wire which should withstand the heat. The original wire seemed to be better than the PVC wire that is the most common type of wire used currently but not as heat resistant as Teflon.
Feel free to contact me, David Gesswein firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, comments on the web site, or if you have related equipment, documentation, software etc. you are willing to part with. I am interested in anything PDP-8 related, computers, peripherals used with them, DEC or third party, or documentation.
