Re: Graziano SAG12

If everything fail you can take the transformer to a motor rewind shop and see if they can reverse engineer the transformer. Is not difficult, I have done a few.

Re: Diaphragm fabric

Basically you want a piece of a mackintosh raincoat.
If all else fails you can sandwich a Teflon layer between two silicon reinforced fabric layers.

Look at McMaster under "Fabric" AND under "Gasket" is not known if some fabrics are water proof or porous but some may be impermeable.

People in my generation have shoe boxes full of family pictures. All different sizes and finish, some fading Polaroid and the yellowing pictures of great grandma and a old aunt nobody remember the name, perhaps there is a name and a date in the back.

Re: Electrical wiring in the home shop.

Fires are not so common in Europe because practically all houses are brick, blocks, concrete and stones, even partitioning walls. Tiles are far more prevalent than carpets.
