Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 676

post #6751 of 14265
Sleeved an 8pin eps, heatshrinkless look but I still used some heatshrink to melt it. How do you guys get your cables so straight >.> mine eventually bends out of place even if I straighten them.

Well kazenagi...
You could have put the sleeve much further up onto the pin (where the big tabs begin) before melting it.
That way you can avoid the very slim visible part just outside the connector.

And for the straightening: make sure you stretch your sleeve as hard as you possibly can, that way the sleeve controls the cable and it's much easier to get it straight.
You know you've done it right if you can hold a single cable horizontally in the middle without the ends of it bending downwards wink.gif If you want to go VERY pro, then try the same while holding it on one end.

I HATE THESE GOD DAMN DOUBLE WIRE PINS, I GET IT INTO THE DAMN CRIMP AND GO TO SLEEVE IT AND IT COMES LOOSE. THEN IT WONT FIT IN, GOD DAMN STUPID SEMI-MODULAR PSU.3HRS FOR ONE ******* DOUBLE WIRE AND IT STILL DOESNT WORK. i just want to chuck this thing into the ground and unload a clip into it. It's pissing me off so much. I want to just buy a new psu but my parents are already pissed at me even trying to sleeve my psu. Voided warrenty, cant resell unless its done, cant finish it, this is just so aggrivating. -end rant-

The way I deal with double cables is to join the cables before the connector. This makes it look better and easier to sleeve.

I just threw this together real quick to see how it'll look like heatshrinkless tongue.gif just want something to compare with a version with the coloured heatshrink. I didn't really stretch out the sleeve so that probably explains all the bends though.

I bought some paracord and this will be my first use of it. I'm a bit lost on how to go about and cut it. Obviously just take a blade or scissors to it, but I'm looking for clean cuts that will avoid fraying as much as possible. While picking up some heatshrink at Frys, I saw a soldering iron that has a blade to cut rope. I'm sure this is ideal for nylon rope but will it cut cleanly through paracord? I have yet to fire it up but I would rather return unopen if its useless for cutting paracord. Here's what I got:

Everything will be fine, lol. I'm not laughing at you dude, it is aggrivating at times. Just take your time and don't rush. I'm the same way, it does take time. Just don't compete, do it for yourself.

Just bought a load of sleeving and shrink for my project. What a great company, MDPC.

it wont fray unless you make it fray. Heatshrink covers up the fray anyways so just return it if using heatshrink
