[Build Log] "Element 13" // 5820K + 64GB RAM + 1.5TB RAID0 + WC - Page 4

post #31 of 118
If by sleeveless you mean heat shrinkless, I'm not aware that a special pin has to be used. See this video for an example on how to make up cables without visible heat shrinks. This video uses a similar technique for paracord.

There is one thing I do a bit differently. Instead of cutting it with dikes like the video shows, then fusing the end of the braid with a lighter to prevent fraying, I use an old knife I keep just for this purpose, heat it up over a gas burner on my stove, then use the hot knife to cut the sleeving. The hot knife blade melts its way through the sleeving more than it cuts through it. As long as the blade isn't too hot, it will fuse the ends of the braid enough to prevent fraying but it will not prevent the sleeving from expanding. Both sides of the cut will be heat sealed in one operation and I don't have to worry about the end of the sleeving fraying before it can get heat sealed.

thanks Chicken! more coming soon. I think my mid-90's Civic was jealous of the time I was spending on the PC, so it decided to hack up some furballs to become the center of attention. It worked. puke.gif

I have newly upgraded corners (version 3! sigh) that I'll publish here in the next few days.

Okay, here's a preview photo to prove I haven't stopped. smile.gif I received an order for a bunch of specialized stainless steel screws online. They're special because of their very specific length, which is required by the restricted interior clearance of the corner bracket design. Plus they look cool and shiny. coolsmiley.png

100º countersunk, size 10-32, 8-32, and a few 4-40s.

I've had jealous cars before so I've been there! I've never been so excited to see a corner before

I just checked out their prices, and you're right, they do have lower costs than I've seen elsewhere, plus a really wide range of sizes.
+rep for the good recommendation
