American Wire Gauge, oh no that brings back some memories, I worked for an electrical harness manufacturer for a long time, running and fixing machines that cut wire to length and crimped.

There was a company in Wales I used to visit that did all the wiring for Sega arcade machines and Bell Fruit.

20awg for the contactors and knocker, 24awg for the flashers, buttons and everything else?

It seems to be pretty low voltage, you could get away with either but to be on the safe side your suggestion sound good.

Will you be adding connectors to the ends of the cable? The crimp terminals vary in size and so can accept a range of wire sizes. Even the opening which you push on the tab is a certain size, so if it's to small it won't fit. Nothing a pair of pliers or a screwdriver won't fix, and if your soldering then it doesn't matter.

I'll be using crimps, used them on my G4D cab.

I thought you should be well versed on such matters. Can't wait to see what you come up with this time. :)

go with 20AWG, 24 is a nightmare to get the crimps to stay on.

Cheers lads, 20 all through it is then. Zebulon, looks like I'll be needing that knocker after all, would rather buy a specific one from you safe in the knowledge that it will be spot on :)
