I have two FF63M field telephones. I would like to find a spool of connecting wire with the necessary jacks for connection. If such a spool isn't available, I would like to find the necessary jacks, or a description of the necessary jacks. Thank you!

I don't understand what you mean exactly. The field line cable is simply connected to the two terminals, w/o connectors. You can use any isolated twin lead wire

I understand that - one can use speaker wire or lamp cord or any other two-conductor wire/cord...I would like to know the specifications for the jacks one would need to connect to the wires so as to make the connection nice and neat.

Thanks for the reply!

You can use 4 mm banana plugs or open cable lugs. However, this was never done in military field cable construction. The bare wire was simply laid under the terminals.

On closer inspection I see that the bakelight terminals can be screwed up to allow a bare wire to be inserted at the bottom to make connection, and the wire is held firm when the terminals are screwed back down.  Duhhhhh!  I was expecting to see a hole....  Anyhoo, I'm good!  Thanks again for the reply and for getting my rusty mind working!
