From a trusted source, if you melt the tip of the paracord before trying to sleeve with it, the results will be much better. However that might kill the collet idea.

However an anti tangle tool can be made with a nail, and an old antenna. Or dude on here makes one, i have both and really either works just as well. But the main idea is to have the tool not be bigger then it needs to be as some paracord is not really expandable. However you will find this out with more sleeving.

Oh about the paracord expanding and fraying like that in the pic that was some really cheap paracord that is used for a clothes line that i had lying around i ordered some good red stuff to go along with my build and i tried melting it to the collet like the video that is in the other thread and it work just fine so i think i should be ok andif not ill probably go make my own from an antennae

thank you lutro0..ur always a big help

Well I try my best. I am not against new things, but after trying as many things as I have, if I can save someone some frustration then all the better. thumb.gif

Just started this a few days ago. The blue/black is much thicker and more soft...I guess that would be the right word. But I am pleased with results. Will you be going heat shrink less?

One thing is if you do go heatshrink less ..you really have to more or less mold the molten part...I still don't have the rolling technique down...pull the paracord as tight as you can and put the end about where the wires are on the pin. Then melt away...and try and roll...like I said lots of mine come out squarish on the tips but they still work. If you need help let me know as well. I am no pro like lutro0 but I can try and help you out.thumb.gif

Don't know if this is asked already,

But

Does individual cable sleeving allow for tighter bends comparing to cables being sleeved together? (for better cable management)

I am asking, because I need a tight bend on my 24pin connector and video card's (2x 6+6pins).

Plus

Is it difficult to remove factory applied heat shrink? rolleyes.gif Or do I need to replace the cable as well? mad.gif

If you want a very tight bend, it's the heatshrink that gets in the way. So look for the guides which explain how to melt the sleeve directly onto the pin. Where is the cable going that you need a small curve?

You can usually remove factory heathrink easily with an Exacto or other hobby knife.
