I was also wondering what type of wire I should use to cable everything

I like this type for cabling from stepper drivers to the stepper motors: Goes great with GX12-5 or GX12-4 connectors. Probably overkill for a Sherline setup though. Shielded type is definitely a good idea.

Logic level from 7i96 to stepper drivers can be small gauge, i.e. >=24AWG. It's useful to use various colors. I usually use silicone insulated wire as it's easy to strip with fingernails, like this I also recommend ferrules, makes everything neat.
