Cable for my furnace

I have a little furnace for jewelery making that's about 30 years old and sometime within the last 10 years the cord started leaching plasticizer and became very brittle. I don't use it now but I may want to repair it. The cord says "14/3" and I think "type 5J." The plug looks like it's removable. It says "15 Amps 125 volts, twist cover to clamp cable, to release insert screwdriver." A quick search only found type 5J lamps, not cables. Would I be able to find a replacement cable?

Cable is probably SJ, Service cable -Junior. More often you sill see it designated SOJ, Service cable - Oil resistant-Junior. Junior means 300 volt rating.

Yes, thanks. I saw it printed more clearly on another part of the cord when I disconnected it, and I see it's still available.
