I thought this might work a bit better. Sadly, the DIY Cable Gallery thread is becoming less of a gallery thread and sadly, more of a Q&A thread
Let's use this thread for the Questions and Answers thread for information regarding DIY cables, connectors, using an ohm meter, paracord, etc. and all those types of questions and comments.
Meanwhile, the following thread will hopefully head back in the direction it was intended for -- to be a gallery for members to show their fine crafting of DIY cables that provide many of us with great inspiration for this fine hobby.
