    All,
    I've followed the various postings concerning DIY inter-connect cables, but has anyone built their own power cables???
    When using shielded power cables, is the shield connected to ground: a)at both ends, b)at the plug end, or c)at the equipment end??? Thanks.

    Many cords designed to be used for power have a drain wire which gets connected to the ground for shielding. Jon Risch's home page has some recommendations - http://members.nbci.com/Jon_Risch
