Forgot to ask, if I want to make a 5 foot cable, and I'm going to do a 3 wire braid, how long should I cut? 

Hmm.  Hard to say.  I always cut a little longer than I think it will be since you can always shorten it.  A foot extra is probably too much extra, but you can start with that and adjust accordingly to the next wires.

Also, the shielding won't burn if I put a lighter to it?

Pretty happy with my new walkaround cord.

neutrik black plugs
black paracord
24AWG silver wires.

Sounds great and I finally have something the right length for me. Now I just gotta mod those Grados,

If you're serious about cable strippers that don't nick the wire.

They're good to Mil-spec, and NASA specifications.

Can someone tell me what sort of techflex is used on these headphones? It has a softer, more cottony look to it, whereas most of the ones I see for order look plasticky. Just wanna make sure I order the right stuff.

What does the .23" mean?

 

That'll take a couple weeks for me to get the money for, gotta do a lot of chores:/.

It's the decimal diameter of the conductor(s). You'll need to cross-reference decimal to AWG in order to find the strippers you'd need.

 

Honestly for most work and if you're a little careful a $10-20 pair of adjustable strippers can be dialed in to produce excellent results.

It didn't see mto work with the one I got today:( I'm looking for one for 26 AWG wire.

You'll need one for small wires like data and control, not sure if most local places will carry those. I think the orange store has  Klien strippers that go to 32 gauge or close.
