Default cable ends

I make my own cable ends by molding them out of babbit. or like for the throttle end out of phone wire by wrapping it and silver soldering it. here's a picture of some examples you can also lacking a mold or making a mold use brass rod or tubing to make assorted ends or use your imaginations Silver solder is best much, stronger that reg.solder. you will need a propane torch to use silver solder and another idea is when you cut the cable heal the end with a touch of silver solder it won't unravel on you or stick one of those nasty little wires in your finger..
