RE: I'm more concerned about vibrations of wire within magnetic fields

Judging by the color of the film wrapping the output transformer, looks like Kapton (Polyimide) Film. According to what I have found out, won't have as long a useful life as Teflon, but is a much better dielectric, I've forgotten about the temperature range but, if memory serves, the temperature range is higher. I had researched getting 2 titanium bolts, but there is a $100.00 minimun chargs and two, six inch long bolts, titanium or not is out of line. If I were Trump, I'd do it in a heartbeat though.
I had thought about small rollerball-like assemblies for under the transformers, but that would cause fit problems within the amps, not to mention still longer bolts and more questions about materials usage, because aluminum gets magnetic with current running through it (my understanding) so we are back into currents, fluxes, emi, etc. all over again. Perhaps ceramics instead? Thinking out loud. Regards.
