I was wondering where I can get some more of the shielded twisted pair cable (and the other solid core wires for that matter). I cut some the wrong length and did a poor job of stripping the outer jacket off the shielded one.

I hope this link works. It is Belden 1300sb 24 awg 4p Cat5e shipboard shielded twisted pair cable
It is the solid core, 4 pair Cat5e cable I think you are looking for.
Solid core Cat5e cables are also called "backbone" cables and are commonly selected when used in applications where minimum handling is expected, like inside walls.  Solid core wire is more susceptible to internal breakage upon repeated handling compared to stranded wire.

You probably could just use any CAT5 ethernet cable, if you have some laying around...

It's not CAT5, it's a single pair - solid core STP cable. Contact Eileen at [email protected] on Monday and she can fix you up with more.

Thanks!

Any tips on stripping the shielded cables? Maybe I need new tools but when I tried to strip the outer jacket, the inside cables got cut too.

Try a wire stripper setting for 12ga wire to strip the outer jacket.

Belden-1300SB is an STP cable with a drain wire.
