I'm going to rewire a 5-arm chandelier. Right now it has old brittle cloth-covered wire.
I know the new wire has to be able to withstand higher temps than 'regular' wire, but I have been unable to find any specifics. What exactly is the kind of wire used for these sorts of light fixtures? And 16-gauge should be sufficiently large? Someone told me to use THHN wire but I thought I'd ask around first.
