Even after reading this, dismantling a transformer will never ever cross my mind, great work.

I had a tab come off a Meteor transformer last year. The winding wire is so fine and had maybe had 5mm that was visible, I thought that this is toast. Contacted any local company electrical based but no one would have a look, found a place specialising in electrical motor rewinding, industrial sized stuff, that looked at it. It was fixed at there minimum 1 hour charge out rate, felt they were happy doing something different. They were curious to know what uses this fairly complex/specific transformer as they aren't common. I asked if it could be replicated and what the cost would be? Yes it could, but no one would pay what we would charge to remake this.
