I was afraid someone was going to ask me that, so here goes>

After finalising the plan




most of the work went into cutting and training the wires, but when that was all finally done I was able to tape up the two layers and tack them in place with Polymorph:




It was very important for the XY plane stitching to make sure all the cables were tacked at the same level so that the needle went through all the sleeves but missed the wires.




Apart from that it was just a case of pushing the needle through with the vicegrip, rethreading the nylon wire and pulling it through. The object was to only stitch the straight parts and leave the bends to be governed by the cutting and training.




For the Z plane stitching I needed to make sure the stitches on one wire married up with the one it was paired with on the other side of the board, so I figured out a color coding scheme.




Then it was just a matter of cutting duplicate strips of color code and taping it all down. I reckoned it would be enough to pin the two outer wires and one in the centre.




Once I'd started it soon became a needle bending excersize, rather than a sewing bee, until I finally settled on the best curve for the job. (Needle bending is done by holding one between the jaws of a pair of radio pliers and then holding a lighter under it until it starts to bend. The trick is to thread the needle first so it doesn't go flying off whenever - not if ever - it slips out.)




Eventually I had the inevitable cats cradle representing the three untightened Z-plane stitches.




At this point the instructions stop, since I haven't yet worked out how I got from there to this!




I'm just happy to have done so!

Here's a question for you guys. Looked back a few pages but didn't catch anything. Since MDPC is down for now, what's the next best thing at this time? Paracord? This is my first sleeving job and I don't want to finish it just to wish I had gone with a different material. I don't want any shiny, plastic looking material, just matte like fabric. But my only worry with paracord is that it seems pretty thick. And last, what about shrink tubing? If not MDPC, what's your preferred outlet?
Thanks in advanced!

I use Lutro0 Customs for all my sleeving/paracord/heatshrink.

You can find it available on ModBunker
(Minus the paracord, that is not yet available on there)
