Wrapping Homemade Round Cables
« on: January 25, 2003, 02:43:40 PM »

I would like to know if I wrap my homemade round cables with aluminium foil and secure it with plastic tape will it reduce their performance?
The reason I'm gonna do this, is cause I believe that by wrapping them with aluminium foil will reduce any interference (by other devices) that might rise when I cut the cables.




Any suggestions?

I can't see it causing problems, but it will look pretty tacky :)

I prefer spiral wrap, myself.

As long as there are no wires showing that the aluminum foil would touch, then you should be ok.  If the wires showing on any of the cuts, it might touch the foil and travel down and touch the wire somewhere else and then blam, the whole internet is broken.  I just always use eletrical tape :)

Yeah, I was planning to use electrical tape, but am i right about the aluminium foil armoring the cable from RFI?

I'm not so sure about RFI, but It does block out some ElectroMagnetic Interference.  Also, you can style it into a cool cap like this:

I always use rubber tubing .  But as Falander said just be careful that there are no bits of wire showing as it might travel down and touch another wire.

If you haven't done it yet, be VERY FRICKIN CAREFUL when you cut it, even going a TINY BIT off track will fux0r the cables.

it should be fine, but if that aluminum foil touches any bare wire or anything that is not protect and carrying electricity (mobo) then you are screwed :D
