Default DIY Mains Cable

Full details are at

Cable originally specified was Pirelli Screenflex S2 featuring the double shield (aluminium foil + copper braid) and two 1.5 sq.mm stranded copper conductors. People found it difficult to obtain this so Baldassari cable a single shield only was later recommended. But this cable is also not available now.

Now there is a cable that is better than both! Should be perfect for making TNT TripleT, which is claimed to be much superior to TNT Merlino.

Two 12-gauge conductors, Teflon insulation with double foil/braid shield.
Three of these braided together for the TTS would carry some power!!
