    Intro - Thanks all - I'm Bob and I have a SA 8500 that someone used too much force on the input selector and
    no longer works. I have a donor unit that appears good.I am curious about the original connections. Single
    strand wire wrapped around a post 5-6 times. Should I try to save and reuse, duplicate original, or just solder
    the new connection. Thank again

    from what ive read here wire wraps are a one time deal, as if re wrapped, the sharp square edge is gone. i would tin the post and solder it. and you will be fine
