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)

Nicely done!  Is that some Vintage Audio Lab bling I see?

I got some really small paracord on ebay and decided to use it for a cable. Its type I i believe, and it turned it to look nice. It was originally a little too thick to fit in the metal jack so I had to drill out the hole to make it bigger.

That moment when youre absolutely fed up with something. Completely assembled before, no sound, took all apart got sound but forgot the shell casings. Took apart again to add shells and wire clamp broke breaking a contact I just soldered, got fixed shells on, no sound again. And I burned myself. **** me, still no sound. Think I might just have to re-order..but I dont feel like waiting 2 and a half weeks on redco again.

Did you use something to help you hold up the rca when soldering? like a third hand.

I always forget the end caps and heatshrinks. :[

Are you done fixing the cable? Want me to make you one? I have some extra wires.

Anyone know where to buy pure silver wires (99.99%) for diy headphone cables?
Thickness can range anywhere from 22 to 28 AWG.

im loving the paracord sleeving, i plan on getting some mogami 2534 or 2893 (not sure which is better) or canare l4e5s cable and stripping it so i can paracord sleeve each of the 4 wires. Will this be ok or will it be too loose in the paracord?

 

EDIT: i realise there are many types of paracord so il provide a link of the one im looking to get

http://www.thebushcraftstore.co.uk/550-paracord---us-gsa-compliant-contractor---15-feet-1149-p.asp

(Type III)

 

EDIT2: crap....seems like Type I micro paracord is best for sleeving single wires according to the user FraGGler who made the beautiful burgendy cable. Its impossible to find Type 1 here in the UK..so im going to have to buy from US but shipping is so expensive...11$ shipping for 100ft....

Looks like I started a good looking trend :-)
post #10796 of 15038

yea thats the same place...the more i buy the more shipping costs get added on...adding 100ft of paracord makes the shipping go up to 11$...but oh well i guess il have to just do it, no other choice.

Do they not discount the shipping at checkout? It builds up for every 10 feet in the cart but then it should drop when they combine. The difference between 10 feet and 100 should be negligible when shipping. Weird.
post #10798 of 15038

thats with the discount

 

 

You saved $20.97 on shipping from 5staredc.- $20.97
Subtotal (10 items):
$9.90
Shipping to London
$11.03
 
Total:
$20.93

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

oh well, after seeing your cables i cannot give up now just because of shipping lol
