Braided Wire Loom?

Postby Skippman » Thu Nov 06, 2008 12:38 pm

Has anyone worked with braided wire loom when modding thier case to keep the wiring nice and clean? I'm wondering what the minimum diameter you can use is that will allow a 4 pin connector to fit through. I'm also wondering how you clean up the ends. Do you use shrink wrap?

For a really proper job, people take the plastic connectors off. You can get kits that make it easier to do, but you still have to be gentle (as the tools are really thin to allow them to get into the holes).

Yeah, shrink wrap is usually the best way of finishing them and making them look neat.
