Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 100

post #991 of 14265
This is Nathan from Koolertek, and this is what I can tell you:

1. Our current sleeving is decent, and I think at the price we run it at, it fills the needs of most people.

2. We got a sample from a mfg for some clean cut, and its not bad. Compared to the TechFlex clean cut, it has a bit more of a gap and uses slightly larger filaments. However, at the 3/8" size (what I had a sample of Techflex of already and received a sample of from the mfg I'm checking out), the Techflex is smaller in diameter. When compared against each other, held together making the same bend, I saw pretty close to the same amount of light through each. IMO, the Techflex is a little better as far as having less gap, but there also is no option at all for getting colors.

3. As far as the MDPC sleeving, I still need to check into that.

4. Our current 1/8 sleeve is on for 12 cents a foot. Enjoy

Also, thanks for vouching for me and my company. About everything I own has kitty hair on it.

BTW, some of you guys do some amazing sleeving jobs. I'm quite impressed.

A few examples of the sleeving (my work) & yes,the color is accurate and UV reactive. Pardon the kitty hair,shedding ftw!

there a pair of cat nail trimmers
i got these ones at the 99 cent store so score

I've been using dog nail clippers for the longest time. Got them at Kroger for a couple bucks. They work amazing with almost anything. I use them to cut sleeving, cables, zip ties etc..

Nice 12 cents a foot is a damn good deal...I will definitely be ordering some purple to give it a try.

So I got around to finishing the 8-pin, and taking a few pictures. Unforunately I don't have the determination to finish the 24 pin with the 8 taking way longer than I thought due to procrastination and trying to be as perfect as possible. Now going to sell it to get parts for a new (20 year old) bike so I can reliably and comfortably get to my new job! Well I have an interview on Monday at least, wish me luck

I can get more if you want, but the camera isn't too fond of macro pictures unfortunately.

Thanks! I had a bit of trouble with cutting heatshrink to even length, and I think a wire or two could have been stretched a bit more, but all in all I'd say I'm pretty happy with the result. Got a few calluses from stretching

If I get the job I'll start a new sleeve project as soon as I get disposable income, promise Appreciate the luck!

Gunna order soon, but I have a few questions.

1. How do you guys sleeve the extra 2 on the 6+2 pin? Should I just remove them?
2. Will I need to recrimp if I shorten up my sata/4 pin cables?

1. I removed mine because I was not using them. (needed a crimper though)
2. Unless you are good at soldering, yes.
Wahoo!
