Short runs of premium braided cables!
« on: Sat, 01 November 2014, 12:21:48 »
That title is a mouthful. I know. lol, so ya... Hello everyone! I've been really liking this forum and everyone here has been great, so I've been wanting to provide a service here. Needless to say, I've been putting some time and effort into beginning to sell braided cables. Through some friendly advice, I've decided against trying to compete with say Mimic Cables, as there's such a small market, I believe it would hurt both Mimic and me to try and compete price/volume wise.

So instead, I've decided to simply start doing some very short runs of nice, premium and unique cables. For example, I will only be making say 10-20 and once I'm out of that particular one, I'm out, and I'll make another kind/color/etc.

Basically, I'm making this post to let everyone know what I have planned and to see if anyone will be interested. I've already ordered some parts for a run, and I have quite a bit of experience with braiding cables.

My cables will all have gold plated connectors, the original cables I will be sleeving will be very high quality, and I will also use very high quality sleeving. Of course, whether I use paracord, PET etc. will be based on the particular run.

But ya. I hope everyone likes the idea, and I also hope everyone will be on the lookout for my first batch of cables. Thanks so much!

I appreciate the replies so far! Right now I'm looking at UV. Nothing too crazy, but a UV green sleeving and green heat shrink, or I'll mix and match. I'm trying to figure out what I'll do with the supplies I ordered.

Hey!  This is really an artisan venture, so I'm moving this to the Artisan Services subforum.  It's a place designated for people like yourself who make custom items to sell (in a non-vendor manner).

If you have any questions about this or want to discuss something related to it, please feel free to PM me.  :)

No problem at all!  I was simply letting you know why I was moving it.   :thumb:
