Default Source of sleeving?

I'm in the process of restoring a DAC10 and am looking for a source of sleeving for some of the component wires. I saw this thread:
https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...ad.php?t=35784
and would love to know where to get the sleeving shown in the pic?

It came from Jones Stroud Insulations, Google should find! It's braided glass-fibre sleeving, impregnated with acrylic varnish. Or google Vidaflex.

Electrical contractor suppliers often stock heat resistant sleeving.

Is there one near you?

The seller at this link has 1mm bore Vidaflex at 6.73 post free for 5 Metres, (8.14 for ten Metres). Though they state that it's available in black, red, green, yellow and blue, they only seem to be offering it in black, green and 'weedy green' whatever that is:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Vidaflex-94...190751&sr=8-64

Hope that's helpful.

This company seems to sell a wide range of sleeving products including the Vidaflex already mentioned:

https://www.hilltop-products.co.uk/c...sleevings.html

It also lists on eBay as well as Amazon (as highlighted by David) with 1m plus lengths in various colours and diameters. Again, search on Vidaflex.

Brillant, thank folks! Is 1mm the size to go for? I see the Vidaflex 111 is available in 0.5mm as well.

The components in the photo you put, were sleeved with red 0.5mm sleeving. Does that answer your question?
