Is it really worth that? Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to buy a new armature?

In this day and age, that skill has gone way of the dodo bird. With the rising popularity of brushless motors and relatively inexpensive cost of brushed armatures, all of that work would better be for some high powered, long lasting motors...sounds like BL to me.

Rewinding armatures is easy.
The problem is getting the correct wires and solder or weld the ends of the wires in place, the motor can get hot enough in normal use to melt normal solder.
When you wind you have to wind in the right direction around each pole and connect the wire to the right connection.
Then you have to dip the armature in epoxy paint to sort of glue the armature wires into place. This prevents the motor from throwing a wind.
And finally you have to balance the armature. If you wound the armature carefully the balance should be very good and only minirature adjustments needed.

Have fun experimenting.
