The 18-3 cloth covered wire from AntiqueFanParts is the most authentic that I have been able to find. There is another 18-3 cloth type that comes close from a competitor, but it’s not authentic and hard to work with. The wire from Antique Fan Parts is the best, trust me on that.

Looks good and original, I fear that I didn’t order a long enough piece

Authentic-looking wire

I grabbed a few feet of this wire for replacing frayed head wires on old Emerson fans. It looks almost exactly like the original head wire -a very close match!

Great wire!

Order was filled and shipped quickly. This is the same quality wire that used to be sold by OTR. I highly recommend this. Thanks Chad for offering this great product and service!
