Is there a source that mentions a person from Nach who prepared the wicks of the Menorah? I thought it was Elkana but can’t find a source to say it was him. Could it be a different person?


You may be thinking of Megillah 14a:

ודבורה אשה נביאה אשת לפידות (שופטים ד:ד) מאי אשת לפידות שהיתה עושה פתילות למקדש
"And Devorah was a prophetess, the wife of Lapidot" (Judges 4:4). What is "the wife of Lapidot"? That she would make wicks for the Temple
