ah, darn, was hoping for some flat wired ones. oh well, will probably order some other colors from you though anyways. Can't wait to see the color legend so that I don't accidentally get the wrong colors!

Hey, if you want it flat. I'll MAKE it flat :)  I should have all of the samples labeled by the end of the weekend!

so you can make flat cables as well?! if you can make something similar to
Show Image
then you sir, have an order from me like...yesterday!

I know I can get the flat sleeving. I need to check if I can still get the flat cable. I'll let you know by next Tuesday at the latest.

===================================
Update: Completed Cables - shipping tomorrow!

**For those of you who originally ordered carbon fiber, I have gotten with most of you and have ordered new sleeves, or whatever we worked out!  Thank you to everyone who ordered a cable and being patient with me during this process!

Once, again thank you to everyone. Without geekhack this wouldn't have been possible. 100% made from my next cable sold will go to geekhack!

Cheers!

Looking good, MM.  I'll be down for a few cables later on.  Especically once you have the sleeving color/codes labeled.

^It does look a little peachy. But it's just standard orange. If you're looking for a bright orange, I would have to get a neon orange.

Happen to have any samples/pics of the neon orange heat shrink?

Or a vendor site that sources it?

I like MiMiC Cables. Nice name.

Indeed........good to know you now have a trade name on here.

You should also draw up a small logo to place on your cables, just to give that unique exclusivity of ownership/branding for your work.

I am working on getting flat ribbon wire right now to make the flat sleeved USB cables. As for price I'm not sure if I can get down to that price with all of the materials used  :/

I was reading up on those LaCie cables in the picture, and while they were only 10-12 dollars each, but the quality was not 100% there, so as long as the price is backed by the quality I would definitely consider purchasing one from you, I would also like to think these are 6ft as well? would they be cheaper if smaller?

As for quality I definitely use higher quality parts from the bulk cable itself to the connectors. As for quality of work, I can post a few pictures of the basic tinning of wires and soldering to connectors if you'd like.

Since the flat cables require a flat ribbon cable instead of bulk wire, I can't promise a price quite yet. Sleeving for the flat cables will be from MDPC and limited to those colors only. Lead time for the flat cables may be a little longer since they're coming from overseas.

Hey, Profosist. I see you around often (I assume a lot of people do with over 3000 posts). I always see your custom title, and it irks me just a bit... I'm not sure if it's intentional, but shouldn't there be an S in there somewhere?
possibly lol i wonder how long its been that way i thought you were going to say something else about non standard layouts
