Hey GHer's I have been making some cables for people here and there on the forum and figured it would be easier to setup a one thread shop for all the cables to be located in one place :)

I am trying to raise up some money to go to DEFCON this year and well as you all know any extra cash when your in Vegas helps lol.

So here is the break down:

[/hr][/COLOR]
Post 2: Current Prices for cables ( custom order and already made )
Post 3: Currently available for immediate sale cables
Post 4: Custom Cable options and generally what to expect in terms of pricing and options etc.
Post 5: Photo gallery


[/hr][/COLOR]

So get some cool cables and send me to DEFCON in the process!:llama:

Current Cable Prices
*subject to change at anytime when I feel like it for whatever reason no matter how absurd

Currently Available Cables: $28 shipped anywhere w/tracking #

Custom Order Cables: $?? shipped anywhere w/tracking #
-These are more expensive because ordering smaller quantities costs more, plus I already have quite a few of these to catch up on!

If you want faster shipping then you will have to pay more!

2. Red Sparkle - $27 shipped - shorty cable less than 2ft. - triple wrapped


3. Green sparkle - $27 shipped - like 5ft. - triple wrapped


4. Green cable - $25 shipped - like 5ft. - double wrapped

Custom Order Cables

[strike]Custom cables can be requested.

Things to consider
- Some materials cost more! $30 is the base price, but will cover most designs :)
- Shrink wrap is available in many different colors
- Different types of cables can be used as well (ones with angles, different connectors, etc.)
- Custom Cables can take upto or exceed a month to be made due to the shipping time of parts to me (Think group buy, but not as long) so don't PM me everyday asking "wheres my cable bro?" I will send updates!

Feel free to PM me and inquire about a cable of your design.[/strike]

[strike]Currently Catching Up On Custom Orders: Will start taking custom orders again soon :)[/strike]

No Longer taking custom orders!!

Ready to start throwing more money at the screen, just waiting to see examples of what you have made.

You say connectors, do you mean you will make custom wrapped micro-usb cables too?

Yeah sorry I forgot to put the lengths on there lol. Most of the cables will fall in the length range.

Techflex is more of a plasticy feel and sometimes if stretched to much kind of looks like netting. Although it is easy to use and wont snag like fabric

Paracord is cloth and looks awesome, but is a pain in the ass to work with in my opinion

Good old Paracord, a million and one uses! Replace the inner yarn/strings with something techy!

I think they are both pretty flexible and neither limit the flexibility of the cable a noticeable amount.

I have two new cables that I should be finishing up tomorrow and posting for sale at some point.

The cables are double wrapped first with paracord and then techflex.

The first cable is maroon paracord with orange techflex over it. The second cable is light blue paracord with patriot techflex over it.
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 46495[/ATTACH]

The dual layer gives a pretty neat effect that I think you guys will like ;-) I will post some more pics when they are done. Also these will probably be an extra $5 because of the extra time and materials to make. So expect $25 shipped.

Ok so I finished the curly cable which was the hardest one I have done yet. I was literally pulling out my hair lol.

[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 46700[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 46701[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 46702[/ATTACH]

I guess I will probably keep this one unless someone wants to pay $40 for it. That may sound insanely high, but this took me 3 hours to make and the materials were around $20 to make it so yeah I probably wont be making another one of these curly cables.

The rope cables are actually made from rope lol. So whatever rope you can find that has a removable inner you can use.

What are the options available when it comes to doing a custom cable?

I would assume the length is one of the major options but other than that can we change the color, material, ends, etc?

Hmmm...

The only thing really stopping me designing a cable is that I use Leopolds and, well, they have the cable-running system underneath. The cable that comes with the boards is the exact width to fit appropriately in the runners and odds are with the thicker cables it will have an issue fitting.

Not sure if it's just lighting/white balance, but are any of the ends of the your "paracord" samples beige/cream or are they just white?

This one in particular: [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 46728[/ATTACH] looks like it has that Noctua beige-maroon color scheme going on.

If so, I might be interested in it if it's for sale.

I don't know why I didn't think of this earlier, but if you guys want black ends I can just shrink wrap the white end black. Other then that next time I will get some black cables :)

I like the cables that have the ends without the white (or future black) plastic ends molded over the usb connectors. The heat shrink only is a very clean and more streamlined look.

WB: When you re-use the plastic covered usb connectors instead of the uncovered connectors, do you have the cable soldered together under the heat shrink?
