    This is one place http://quickbit.co.uk/Cable/CY-Cable...-0-75mm-4-core but if you do a search on here you will find a better place (cable) or here; http://www.electrical-trader.co.uk/c...-cy-cable.html ..Clive

    Said it before but I'll repeat it because those 2 places are the same.? (Same number). . . . I don't like Quickbit cable as it's brittle and actually think it's the same stuff they use on these chinese machines, it's certainly feels like it.

    I use CSE cables. Never had any trouble with it and used 100's of meters. http://www.csecables.com/acatalog/CY-Cable.html
