Thanks guys for all the help! I'm most likely going to be doing a 2 clear and 2 black cable using the btg stuff given how much cheaper it is. Since this isn't going to be sheathed I'm not going to directly get mogami/canare stuff. There may be a day when I try a sheathed cable but it is not this day! :tongue:(5 points to anyone that gets this reference lol)

Do you have a link to the cable you'll be using?

How small is micro paracord exactly?

post #789 of 2455

Small enough to just fit one wire.

Supply Captain for sure.  I've bought from them a few times.  Look at the Type I/Accessory/Vest Cord.

Hi,

 

Does any one have any advice about how to attach ciem cable connectors that go into ciem ?

I'm looking to recable my Grado 225i with Mogami 2893 and some paracord.

 

Does anyone know what type of paracord is needed for this job? (diameter)

 

I'm kinda new to the DIY scene, would appreciate some help.

 

Open to suggestions.

Are you wanting to sleeve each wire individually or all of them together? If individually, you could use micro-paracord that was mentioned in the last page (quoted below), or you could use 550 paracord to sleeve them all together. There might be a size smaller than 550 the would fit all 4 wires into it, and I'm sure there is. In my experience, 550 would work just fine for the 4x26awg wires.

 

550: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.Xparacor&_nkw=paracord&_sacat=0&_from=R40
