LoL. I've had that experience more than a few times. I like the cable. How's the weight?

I've done quite a few 8strand braids now. Some round or half-round types can be done freehand, but if I'm trying to do a dualstarquadthingamajiggy then I have to set up a rig with clamps etc.

 

I once had a local guy commission an 8-strand 12-foot solid core cable. That... was a ludicrous amount of work.

 

 

This one's only 6ish feet... but it was still a stupid amount of hours to put it all together. I have a jig set up and actually rotate myself around it as I work to ensure symmetry since it's impossble to pull with the same strength/angle with each hand every single time. Of course, that means I have to keep track of the proper orientation and order in my head as I walk around to make sure I don't screw up. Why not just rotate the jig? Because when you've got 8 wires and clamps and miscellany balanced around a small table, moving it is not an option.

Thanks again TrollDragon for the Lemo plugs!

 

Mogami wire, 2-strand braid, Lemo 5-pin plugs, and an Amphenol 3.5mm connector. I'll put an actual splitter on this eventually, I just didn't have one on hand when I made this. I was bored and wanted to do some DIY so the Y-split is heat shrink for the time being.

Wow those look great! A really amazing plug to work with, the build quality is incredible.

You are most welcome!
Enjoy

The Lemo chassis' came today. They're smaller than a mini XLR chassis so putting them in my T50rp should be easy as pie. Actually, I can mess pie up, so easier than that.
