For those who are not making an order through Redco for a while so they can grab a wire stripper, I found a good alternative at Home Depot.  It runs $8.## before taxes.  It's made by Commercial Electric (with the green grips) and will handle stranded wire to the 26 gauge level.  Not quite the 30 gauge that the Redco variant has, but I feel for me, it should be fine.  The also have a version by Klein, which can do the 20ga to 30ga range for about $16.00.

 

I guess I was just feeling cheap and for the few cables I work on each month, it should be more than sufficient.

is it just me, or are hifiman plugs impossible to solder? Ok so I get where I solder the signal... even that is tricky the space is so small. But how and where the hell do I solder the ground?

Long time lurker, did a recable on a broken headset I bought, was proud of the results.

Great question.  I've just completed such a task the last two evenings with success.  Though I've done it before, I've found a better way to accomplish this - and to neatly do it with much success.  I'll do my best to provide an update a bit later today / tonight on how to accomplish this.  I'll try to take some shots of the plug, with a wire, and order the steps so that one can achieve success relatively easy via this process.

 

More to follow a bit later ...

Anyone know of some good silver wire? I don't want to spend too much, thanks!

Depends on what you want to use it for. If it's just interconnects, you can save some cash by buying solid core silver.

Headphone cable.

I used solid core for a few LOD's, works fine. Toxic has some nice stranded silver but its expensive.

Hmm. I'll do a search around.
