Thanks for that, a position I hadn’t considered. Anyway,Multi Grooves wrote: ↑Sat Jul 25, 2020 7:36 amRolling my own caused the biggest failures by a country mile Vs bought cables. At first they were fine but then over time the connections started going funny- dunno if it was due to the quality of solder that I used... The majority are still in use, but I shudder at the thought of taking them apart for re-solder. The bottom plug is a joy to use but when the suppliers ran out, I was forced to using the upper one. The fit is so tight it requires greasing before being able to slide the barrel up the cable to get to the critical parts :pekbro wrote: ↑Fri Jul 24, 2020 5:15 pmI refuse to buy any cable's that cost $8 a piece. Sooner or later I am just going to buy a shitload
of those nice metal connectors and a bunch of, I dunno 26 awg copper wire, which is what they
all say they are using, and the go to town and make em, even if they are all the same color.
Though of course I probably get some paracord sleeving to go with it.
When I factored in the time it took it wasn't favourable. Then adding repair times, it was definitely not making $£€/time sense.
I have never done it, so it’s not that big of a deal I guess.
Definitely I will try a small number first, before committing
to making a bunch.
