Indeed, cloth covered wire is essential- doubly so if it is coily! (new word alert!).

I've also just found some good old-fashioned varnished cloth tube insulation and some nice, big paxolin washers!

Is this an online source or did you find such in real life?

I found the washers and insulation on Ebby, and some clothy wire on a special offer from a Chinese supplier, if that helps?


Hi HP,
Can you share the source you found for the cloth covered wire?
