    Well, thing turned out better then I hoped. My first set of cables came out great...I used Canare RG6 cable, Canare RCA ends, Techflex sheething, & heat shrink tubeing. The tools cost alot, but they were worth it.

    The only hitch was when I was trying to make my first componant video cable. I didnt know the wires are a bit thinner then the RG6 cable, but all I had to do was adjust the blades on my striper a bit & it worked.

    Well back to making more later today. Do you think there is a market for people who would like to buy custom made cables?
