Wheel collars are used to hold the wheels on model airplanes.
Instead of JB Weld, I solder the cable strands at the end. The solder keeps it from fraying and if you don't get too aggresive with it and make the cable too thick it will still fit through the cable stop and makes clutch cable adjustment a little easier.

I'm getting some tomorrow!
