I think that maybe we worry maybe more than needed about the strain. The exit is pretty snug. I suppose a little heat shrink running inside from around the solder joints to the exit is fine if it really bothers you.
I might care if I was making it for someone else, but I can always fix it if something did happen.
Moreover, we are using much better wire than the hair-thin, 7-strand stuff in stock cables. A good solder joint isn't going anywhere without serious concentrated force. I wouldn't stress it *Rimshot*.
welll if you cld post an answer on this thread,why not I post a query that relates to DIY?
There it is. Gotta push the red button even after the warning. I'll lay it out softly.
To the point, if you read then you'd understand I never gave an answer because a question was never asked.
Two people made statements about the lack of strain relief based on observations of pictures in a gallery thread. I made counter statements to contest their statements that I felt were mostly unwarranted. Take a minute and reread. Hopefully you'll understand.
That said, our conversation might have been considered to be starting to head a bit off track which must have been the reason you felt open to asking a random question not related to the conversation at hand. A question that the first page makes clear isn't appropriate for this thread as there is another thread perfectly suited for it. Reference the second paragraph in bold on the front page.
When I pointed you to said thread, it had dual purpose:
1. Lead you to where you are more likely to get the answer you seek.
2. Avoiding detailing the thread.
The fact that you chose to ignore my suggestion and instead imply hypocrisy on my part without first reading what you commented on would usually lead me to a less cordial response. Also, adding emojis to sugar coat the B.S. is more insulting than simply stating a grievance.
Hopefully that clears up this misunderstanding. Edited by Kamakahah - Yesterday at 10:09 am
