Since you are not dealing with any real HV any 600V rated wire will be fine
as the actual breakdown is around 2-3 times that. They werent that fussy
USA made VOM test leads are a good source of HV wire up to 5KV or so
depending on their original use. Ive used them in many 2-3KV supplies over
the years. Old ones can also get brittle so be carefull what you get.
Teflon is good for HV BUT it is very easily nicked and damaged.
