I found some good cable at Ace Hardware, but it quite thick, thicker than the cables I've seen go out with LT's, etc....

I adapted it to XLR 4pin, because this way I could use NP1 batteries (with an adapter) and it is compatible to the aatonLTR7 as well as to Tobin motors which I use on my Bolex and to the power adapter of my videocamera.
On the Konvas motor I left the original plug (a buildin XLR4pin is to big to be mounted into the motor), and made with a short cable an adapter to 4pin XLR, this way I could use the good spiralcable with all of my cameras.
I hope this could be usefull, and you understand my english

I use 16 gauge for the standard length cables, and step up to the 14 gauge for the long cables.

With that kind of wire adapter, be sure to make a spare. They get a lot of wear, and if the adapter breaks, you're stuck if you don't have another.
