    Completed my first pair of RCA interconnects.
    what do you think?

    the locking plugs were tough to terminate, the silver solder wouldnt stick, took me a while to get a strong connection.

    Well it looks very nice.

    What make/model wire did you use?

    And silver-plated shield? Not sure if that matters but it sounds impressive. [​IMG]

    Are you going to sell these?

    Made this one tonight, took me a few hours.
    Im gonna use it for my sub, you cant see it in the pics but its a shimmering cable, there is chrome, them black, then white.

    I thought I would never have a use for my old custom shrink labels, have this cable thick enough to hold the heatshrink was icing on the cake. and no its not for sale [​IMG]

    Ive assembled a photobucket gallery

    My photobucket DIY cable gallery

    tell me what you think?

    Im also an art major, so I like tweaking the photographs, composition and lighting.

    not to mention, all the cables I make have to look aesthetically pleasing [​IMG]

    its almost an art for me now, except I work with different tech flex and braid types [​IMG]

    enjoy the eye candy

    I can definitely tell you are an ART major. Very nice.

    The cables look sharp.
