> Before I do, I was wondering about other folks here who

> make up cable assemblies for far less than what a
> manufacturer would charge.
> For example, a friend of mine was quoted $85 before

> TX-438. About 44ft of 1/4 7x19 galvanized aircraft cable.
> Not sure of prices yet if I do this, but I think I would
> do it for about $35-$40 plus shipping.
> Assembly would be in accordance with the Nicopress
> instructions and each crimp checked with their gauge. I

> stainless requires the use of a pneumatic or hydraulic
> press on 1/4 inch cable.
> Although assembly would be in accordance with their
