All of the wireing on my CNC came from my junk pile, so I can't help. Also I used shielded cable and terminated(grounded) all the shields at one point using just one end of the shielded cable.

I have used Jameco for some electronic stuff. I haven't done any price comparisons but they have a good selection of electronics stuff.

I wired mine direct. I wonder if you could use the 4 wire power connectors that are on PC power supplies and extensions.

yes that would work gadget,..

I ended up getting some 4prong molex/weatherproof connectors (like $3 for 12 male and female plugs) and some cable clamps, I'll clamp the wires coming out of the enclosure and put the connectors near the steppers..
