hi I didn't really read most of the thread, sorry - but is there any chance you have anything ready to ship (to Sweden)? :)

I could have something in the mail Wednesday, assuming I have all the parts.  I am a day away from having 0 queue for the first time ever.

I don't seem to get the shipping option when I press checkout, what am I doing wrong?
it should be $31, not $21 total right?

thanks! :)

OK there we go, order placed, a bit weird indeed but it works out well. I hope I understood the custom selection process correctly, I wrote in:
Royal/Black
5ft
(if included) grey heat shrinkwraps
USB Mini <-> USB A (for KBC Poker II)

Thank you!

also got mine this week, put some heatshrink on it since I didn't really make it too clear I wanted some on it. :p

accidentally screwed up the first connector so had to use some of this industrial super thick stuff on the USB A end... I quite like it even if it looks a bit ridiculous. :D

thanks tjcaustin!

Just placed an order last night: #1293

Can you confirm whether you received my email. I wanted to correct the order to have black heat shrink.
If there is anyway I can modify the special instructions for you let me know.

Thanks, looking forward to the cable.

Hello, just a question to austin and others.

What has been your favourite sleeve material and why?

I'm thinking of ordering a MDPC sleeve, but I already have one of your cables (which I love btw) with it and I'm worried it might be harder to fit into a small keyboard bag.

Also just curious if you can do coiled cables; this would probably require a softer sleeve.

What's this one?



Doesn't look like CF or paracord to my completely untrained eye.  I just realized that I must have it.  It is... precious to me.

My favorite sleeve kinda bounces around with my mood, but right now my cables I use are split half and half paracord and mdpc.  I like carbon fiber and kevlar, too, though and almost always try to think of a cable I should redo in it.  Silver silica used to be on all my stuff, but I've changed a lot of it (the stuff that is) and silica can be itchy.

Also, I can do coiled cables in any sleeving I offer

I'm so glad you said tinned.  Made an order a few days ago.  So many companies no longer tin, much less being taught anymore.

Just got it! It looks great. However, the mini USB does not fit as snugly as I would've liked, it's incredibly easy to pull it out, but other than that its fantastics.

Just a tip for your next customer from oversea: Attach (a copy of) the receipt on the outside of the package, so your customer doesn't need to go to the local customs office for paying the extra taxes ;)

I only use heatshrink on request.  Most cables have a hard plastic cover on the ends.

I haven't made anything for shure IEMs yet, so I don't have anything to show.  But they shouldn't be any different than the standard CIEM plug to do.

Both ends of this cable seem to not have the large black plastic connectors on them and are only shrink-wrapped. Is it possible to custom order a cable that is similar?

USB -> USB mini without the plastic connectors surrounds and with gold connectors.

It's whatever you choose from 1 - 6ft. The ranges are more to show the upgrade price for longer options.  When you place an order, there will be a comments field in the shopping cart for you to specify length there.
