    Default Where to get motor leads, labels and varnish?

    I have gone it to a 7.5 hp Euro lathe motor with solid lead wires with crumbly insulation.


    Carefully removed the string.


    Exposing the lead connections.


    Now where can I buy online motor leads, either premarked in Euro style W1,W2,W3,U1,U2...etc or labels I attach?
    The current solid wire is about 0.070" diameter or....13 gauge but I want to go stranded.

    The sleeves look in good shape and reusable, what varnish do I use?

    And string?

    Bonus, know where I can find that white plastic fantastic terminal block?
    Mine is brittle and broke.

    I have a roll of what might be that type of string. It is some sort of electrical tie string IIRC. I will check to see if I can easily find it. If it is right you can have some of it for the cost of shipping. It might be to big though, let me look.

    I have a catalog that is very informative. Did not see a link to the catalog. See motor repair section.

    Locating materials used for the rebuilding of electrical apparatuses can be a daunting task.
    Finding a receptive local motor shop willing to supply, or provide what you need is also a tall order.

    If you really want to roll your sleeves up, and dive into the search for materials,
    the URL below is a place to get you started.

    It's a 2017 PDF of the Barks Publication Bench Reference Guide. A 2019 version is likely available but
    you'll have to buy that one.... and I believe the newest version comes out this month sometime.

    Good Luck, and have Fun!
