Wire spool source

Post by Dellpound » Wed Aug 21, 2019 11:22 am

Does anyone know a good source for small spools of cloth covered automotive wire? I prefer to buy spools instead of set lengths.

Y n Z's yesterdays parts in Redlands, California. It's on Stewart Street. They will also make you an authentic custom loom from your original pattern. Gene, the owner, even wove the original Ford script tag into my looms for my 1925.

Just be sure you get a heavy enough gauge wire! Six volt systems should not use 14 gauge. twelve gauge or even ten sometimes.

Thanks for the links, I'm not looking for wire spool for a Ford T, but I've found LOTS of other things I need on these shops...
