    Default Keiko Cables

    Made these from the cables I won from Ken awhile back.

    Not too bad for my first time. Using them with my newly acquired CR-840 Yammie and the TL2 Blackstones.







    Thanks, Ken!

    Pretty good. I was using BJC, Belden 5000UE and these are on par with them. These look better aesthetically because the cable insulation is round.

    Nothing to doing this really. I have 7.00 invested for 25' of TechFlex and 5.00 in heat shrink. Ken included the nanners for me and the MC pins I had lying around for awhile. Only tools you need are a pair of scissors and a blow dryer. Simple job and I had fun doing it.

    I made a third cable out of the 14/4 for my brother's CS20. Identical to these except it has nanners on both ends. He bought a pair of the B stock MITs for his TSis, but didn't get a single for his center. He said it's working well for him and liked my work.

    Gives you something to do while you re-hab. How is that going by the way ?

    Forgot this pic. Notice Rocky in the upper right. I've nicknamed this little s#!% 'JAWS' because he'll chew up anything. Given the chance, he'd scrap these cables in a second. He gets it from his pappy, Koa, I assume, whom as a pup, chewed completely through my 12AWG BJC surrounds.

    "Keiko Cables" has a nice ring to it. Thinking of getting into the cable game Mike?


    With each set sold, you could include some of that famous pie!:tongue:


    Those look great by the way.

    Keiko's Cables & Pie, why am I envisioning a roadside stand somewhere ? Mike, I think you are missing the boat on a great franchise opportunity here. Cheers.

    Nice job on the cables Mike. I love Rocky's look on his face while staring at the cables. Almost like he's thinking "yum".

    The first cable should be called a Maui Wowwie, and be delivered by this pie

    Rascal, he is. That's exactly what he's thinking!

    Little $#!% has bonded to me tho and it's hard to stay angry with them whenever they get into stuff.
