I acquired a very complete and mint (though dusty) Focomat 1c last night, the variety with the filter drawer that says "color" just above the condenser. Everything is present as far as I can tell, including the AN glass ring that slips between the condenser and negative. The only thing that it needs is a rewiring, which leads me to my questions: Where does one source the type of cable that goes from the lamp housing to the column? It has a braided exterior, a rubber insulation, and three wires inside. I tried calling around to some light fixture stores with no luck. it seems to be the same diameter as the Ikea braided light fixture cords, but i'm not sure if those are grounded, i'm almost sure they're not. Is the main source of worry and only area that needs replacing where the cable enters the lamp housing? there was a visible crack in the cord just above the head, with wiring exposed. The wiring underneath and to the illuminated enlargement factor scale seems okay, but I haven't pulled the wiring in the column yet. I suppose i'm wondering if I should go through the trouble of rewiring the entire assembly from the head, through the column, and under the baseboard to the switch, or if I should just wire a cord directly from the head and run that to my timer to control exposure and focus. If anyone has any experience rehabbing one of these beauties, I would be interested to hear your take on the appropriate steps to take here.
