    What wire gauge for connecting Keyboard manual to TG?

    I aquired and recently refurbished two beautiful A/B/C series manuals.
    I now need to reconnect them to each other and the tone generator. (harness was gone when I got them)
    What gauge wire should I use?
    How fine a gauge can I go without issue?
    (I'm guessing the crazy heavy gauge black cloth wire used in a stock post war era organ is totally overkill?)
    Thanks

    guess almost anything is suitable..as long as it aint to weak to break by potential vibrations..no high voltages from TG
    Just think of the almost hairthin wires inside the manuals..

    That was EXACTLY my thinking !!! I was considering the hair like resistive wires inside the manual.
    I have some really nice (slighly light gauge) silver wire that I want to use (got a lot of it).
    I handles well, very low resistance, is not very brittle and has 6 different color jackets.
    You talked me into it. I may go with that.
    Thanks
