    Hi,

    Because pinball wiring does have its own specification, I would like to know where I could purchase appropriate wires in green, blue, yellow, red.

    Thanks

    I made my own small runs of striped wire and it works pretty well.

    Buy a pack of cheap medium nib paint pens from Amazon.

    Take a few feet of hookup wire. I attached hemistats to both ends and then turned one about 10 times. Then I laid the wire stretched straight on a piece of cardboard and ran the paint pen sideways down the wire. Untwist and voila -- very nicely striped wire.

    I got this kit in 18GA and 22GA

    Thanks for your support, I helps me a lot.

    I ll first try to get them from a European merchant as import taxes from the US are very high.

    I would ask high_end_pins (Chris) what he does.

    Quoted from dr_nybble:

    I do almost the same thing!

    I use hemostats and twist the wire 1 turn for every 2 inches and clamp them to saw horses. I have a small block of wood that I drilled a hole all the way through to slip the wire in, and a second hole that holds the paint pen...then I just slip this across the wire and done
