Video Sleeving Guide Series - Page 8

post #71 of 97
Lutro thank you for all your guides! You have made me confident enough to jump into sleeving. I appreciate all of your insight and the time you took to make these guides. I will be posting more pics every time I get more things done.

Thanks again!

First sleeve ever! thumb.gif



Here is the whole lot of fans, including my Y connectors biggrin.gif



SATA and PSU cables to come next.. Building confidence!

There is only 1 video missing from all of these, and that is a video of how to make a custom extension. Could you please do one asap?

You have watched the videos haven't you? You can easily adapt the principles of, for example, the heatshrinkless together with the crimping guides for making extensions.

Of course! But he has said previously that he will make an extension video.

The reason I pointed it out, is because I would like to see if he has any tips or tricks for when the makes them. I measured all my wires the same length, but yet after sleeving them and inserting them into the connectors, they end up different lengths.

Assuming that you measure each wire exactly before cutting then using an automatic wire stripper means that the exact length of insulation on each wire will be stripped off. Also I find that pre-crimping the pins helps me align them correctly every time on the wire before inserting them into the crimper.

I've also noticed that Lutro0 crimps the pin onto one end of the wire then remeasures and trims the wire as necessary.

If you want to get the 'rainbow' (curved) effect then cutting the wires shorter on one side of the connector helps you get this. I use roughly 7mm for each 45º of bend but others apparently use a lot less.

Speaking of which, I decided next time to try your method smile.gif

(But usually I use 6.6mm per 90º bend wink.gif)

It will indeed be coming that and allot of others guides will be coming as well. I am actually in AZ right now hoping they can do surgery on me and take the pain away.

I normally change it up depending on the system so there is not really one length that is right for all. however you guys are getting closer to the length I use. =P

Don't rush back into anything you shouldn't. Take it easy and we will see the videos when you can do them.
