Replacing Power Cord on Vintage Tube Radio
I am fixing up an old tube radio for a relative. It is a table radio that is approximately 41 years old, which has been taken well care of. Overall it is in great condition.
The insulation on the power cord is cracking & crumbling. Thereofre I need to replace it.
The original power cord looks to be standard "lamp cord."
Though I cannot find any specifications, I cannot imagine that the amplifier section is large or draws a lot of current.
The tubes that this radio uses (one of each) are:
12AV6, 35W4, 12BE6, 12BA6, 50C5.
Given this information, is there any reason that a new 18 gauge power cord wouldn't be adequate for up to an 8' length?
