If you're looking for a specific color or size of vintage cloth covered wire search tajacobs on eBay. I was looking to do a faithful rewire of a phone I recently added to my collection and found he has nearly every size and color of vintage Western Electric wire. Tinned, enameled, you name it, he has it. He is very responsive and friendly. Prices by the foot, fast shipping and excellent packaging.

I have ordered some items from him and concur with your comments.



Thanks Butch, because I want to restore a Western 317 that my dad got back in the mid sixty's. It was fairly complete, but the wiring was kind of butchered at some point, and the transmitter was shot.
Now I know where I can find proper vintage wire.
