Very nice setup, I also like the strategically placed couch in the background for when you've overdosed on solder fumes. :biggrin:

2 foot pure 22 gauge silver interconnects in some opaque teflon, with locking rca plugs--braided nice and neatly, a total of 2 feet long.  Definitely an improvement over my stock rca's and much better to look at.  If anyone wants me to make them some send me a pm :D

Not mine just a picture from the net... :D 

 

And according to Kester

 

Quote:Kester Shelf Life Policy
Solder Wire
Solid solder wire has no limited shelf life given the following conditions:
1. Storage must be in a dry, non-corrosive environment
2. The surface may lose its shine and appear a dull shade of gray. This is a surface phenomenon
and is not detrimental to product functionality.
 
Flux cored solder wire has a limited shelf life determined by the alloy used in the wire. For alloys
containing more than 70% lead, the shelf life is two years from date of manufacture. Other alloys
have a shelf life of three years from date of manufacture.

In keeping with the thread topic, two DIY cables:

 

1) ALO 22 gauge OFC 4 wire braid with Switchcraft 35HD Series 3.5mm plug and Cardas RCAs

 

2) Mogami 2534 Neglex Star-Quad with Switchcraft 35HD Series right angle and straight 3.5mm plugs

 

DIY cables: left-hand side is an ALO 22 gauge OFC 4 wire braid with a Switchcraft 3.5mm plug and Cardas RCAs, the right-hand side is a Mogami 2534 Neglex Star-Quad terminated with Switchcraft right angle and straight 3.5mm plugs.

It isn't likely that anyone posting in this thread is going to pay for someone to make them cables. Haha

Y'all just watch because of that post I'm going to be the next Toxic Cables haha. lol jk it was a joke
post #13530 of 13821

This thread needs more pictures, so what the heck. A cute little double 3-pin male XLR to 4-pin female XLR. Why not. :D

 

 

Also - I don't I could stand being the next toxic cables. Making the cables is fine but dealing with the customers would be a nightmare! Why does it cost so much? Can I get a silver connector instead of black one? Can you make the sleeving in purple? Aren't the wires supposed to thicker? Why don't you use that solder mixture? My cable broke d/t shoddy workmanship! (cut in half by scissors)... :confused_face:

 

If I was going to do that I'd need someone to handle all the customers while I retired to the basement, listened to mozart and actually made cables.
