I have 4 nonworking NST's that I would like to repair.
3 - 12kv @ 30ma and a 9kv @ 30ma
What is the best solvent to use to disolve the tar?
I'm thinking about putting them all in a bucket and
letting them soak for a few days. (weeks?)
Many people have had luck with the following strategies:
1) Freeze it, then hit it with a chisel and hammer. The tar cracks in solid
block (but you might lose the fine wires.
2) Heating to melt the tar, shaking to redistribute, then resolidifying,
may fix your NST.
3) Heating to melt the tar out (old barbeque grills have been suggested..)
4) All manner of hydrocarbon solvents (gasoline, kerosene, etc.), but
they're all slow. (kind of like trying to dissolve the asphalt in the
street in front of your house).
