Sleeving tip

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I saw alot of threads on people's ways of sleeving cables, some go inch by inch (which is probably a pain for really long cables), some get the pins stuck somehow, and get other kinds of trouble. So I thought "why not just run a string with a sewing needle trough the sleeve and then pull cable trough with the string?" Well it worked when me and my dad set up a satelite dish and had to run a 30meter long antenna cable trough a pvc pipe, and all that with just a thin sewing string. or when I fixed a tent with that method, why not with sleeving too? My idea is to straighten out the sleeve, run the needle with string trough it trough the sleeve, tie it to the end of the wire being pulled trough and put some electrical tape over that, then just pull it straight up. I didn't try this yet, as I had no chance to sleeve any cables yet, but I just thought I'd share it with OCN, so if anyone tries it, I'd be glad to know if my idea turned out good or bad.

It's a good idea, I'm sure it works.

/off topic: why sleeving? Some tight duct tape around the cables would keep them tight and close together and the smooth surface of the tape would cause less turbulence, thus better airflow.

Sleeving for a nice look in cases, as cables look alot better trough a window when sleeved, than not sleeved or duct taped. besides, the shiny surface reducing turbulence would proably not make a big enough difference in such (realatevly to aircraft where it has a huge importance) small airflow/space situations
