I have two old soldering stations with burned out elements I want to rewind. ( One is an old ungar they quit making ages ago but it was a good iron ) I found some #30 Nikrothal 80-20 wire cheap on eBay which appears to be the same length and resistance as the original. I just want to know what kind of paint or insulating material to use to keep the wire from shorting to the metal barrel or to neighboring turns ( They are both 24 volt transformer units ). I took one elemant apart already and the coil is sandwiched between to metal tubes about .02" apart.
