I believe it is this page:

https://www.powerstream.com/Wire_Size.htm

It's useful - just bear in mind that the max amps columns are not from any
regulatory source as far as I know - they are just using someone's rule of
thumb. Fine for amateur work but check other sources if you need to pass
UL, NFPA, IEC, VDE, etc. I was actually "bitten" by this about 12 years
ago. I used this table to size cable to carry 115 amps DC and ended up
having to do extra testing to satisfy regulatory requirements because
technically I had chosen inadequately-sized cable according to NFPA
guidelines.

They have a fair few useful looking links under the 'technical
resources' page as well (one of them being the wire gauge link above).
