Un-wirewrapping (and re-wirewrapping) a PDP-16

The main suggestion I'd put forth is to make certain the wire you're
unwrapping is known, since unwrap tools and wrap tools generally support
only one wire size.

All my wirewrap equipment is from Gardner Denver with the exception of a
Radio-Shack hand-wrap tool. That was too good for them, so they promptly
discontinued it about 10 years ago.
