DIY Cable Gallery!! - Page 719

post #10771 of 15065

I decided to spruce up my Grados with a touch of white.  Had some Canare starquad in white and some white paracord with black/white heatshrink so I ran with it.  A little paint later I think I have some relatively unique headphones that aren't overly gaudy.  And as promised, you get to see the stove shrinking results.

Did I cross the line?

For the cable masters here, is there any good way to remove the writing from shrink tubing? I haven't been able to find any with no lettering and I just want a cleaner look for my finishing touches.

I bought the cheap 3:1 heatshrink tubing from cableorganizer.com and it didn't come with any writing on it.  For that matter I've bought 2:1 from redco (the cheaper stuff) and it had no writing either.

I dont think so at all, very very nice. The 3.5mm jack and splitter were worked in perfectly imo. Very good job and color selection. Although the grado lettering does kind of look silver.

Yeah I didn't touch the lettering, so you're dead on there.  I'm not sure if I want to try to repaint it, or maybe pull those rings, paint them white then paint the lettering black.

I use some 1200 grit wet and dry paper + water to gently 'sand' the printed text off. I have heard of others using white spirit, but it didnt work for me.

It is also called cajuput oil. Try using combination of acetone and sandpaper. That might work

sorry for off-topic and search function doesnt show it properly or maybe i am searching the wrong keywoards...

 

anyways, where do you guys buy those white cables! i need a bunch of meters for my future project and gray or transparent with spc wire are also ok! 22-24 gauge is good enough.

 

i can just settle for shoelaces though LOL (thanks nick n)
