hello all, well I ordered a "new" speaker off of e-bay for my AK,
So where do you folks get your cloth covered power cords from?
Thanks,

Mike

Try, www.radiodaze.com.

They have cloth covered wire listed under their components section.

I like radiodaze, too. Here's another source. The parallel brown is appropriate for early 30's to about 1936 radios. After that most sets went to rubber-covered cords similar to what's used today.

Sundial also has twisted pair which is great for older appliances. I've used it on 1930's fans.

If it is a "cord" for the speaker it will be more than a "power" cord. It may be simply a tinsel cord for audio signels or a cable that has DC for the electromagnet and signals for the speaker audio, usually a 4-wire cable.

Antique Electronic Supply will have both the tinsel cord and the cables.

No, it's not for the speaker it's for the 1929 AK 55C.
I had been getting my cloth cover wire from a fella in NC, as I restor antique electric fans, but he does not have brown cord.
So I will give the links you folks gave a try. Thank you.

Another newer cord that is very difficult to find is the black rubber or plastic cords. Brown and White seems to be all that is a available. Sometimes you can find Gray although that is just about as hard to find as Black. I like to keep the black and gray cords for test equipment. I did find some black lamp cord in 16ga and 18ga at a Farm & Fleet store last year but they don't have it any more. I should have bought the whole roll. I can't even find it on the internet lately.
