Rounded Cables

10/13/04

 

If you want rounded cables, yet don't want to pay top dollar there is a cost effective way to make them out of your existing gray cables. You just need a $.99 role of electrical tape and maybe a razorblade.

 

 

 

 

Take your floppy or IDE cable and split the wires into sections. If you can't split them with your fingers use a razorblade but be very careful not to cut into the wire. You can pull them apart easily after a small cut.

Note: the smaller the section the rounder the cable can be in general 

 

 

After you get done splitting the cable use a few small pieces of tape to bind the ends and middle together to make wrapping easier.

 

Now wrap the bundled section of wire. I am not the best at this so don't be to critical at my wrapping.

 

 

Repeat the steps for the second 1/2 of the cable.

 

Now that the wrap is done you can add accents like different colored tape or what I chose UV reflective Zip Ties to show off the cable.

 

When all is said and done this mod is cost effective and quick. It shouldn't take longer then an hour tops. This mod isn't perfect like the store bought look but there's something to be said for making things yourself. Specially if price is an issue.
