Re: making network cables

is more beautyfull to make a cable together with a sighted girl than trying and trying to work with such tools.

folks, trouble has a valid point, if it's not for "professional" use, as some of my cables have been, then it doesn't matter which colors are matched as long as they match end to end and both wires together

and if you can't find one, you can make a sonic conductivity tester, ells I made one out of an old tire patch kit box, two leads, a pare of self piercing alligator clamps and a 2 AA battery holder that used a 9 volt battery connector to connect it and a small switch, the whole thing fit in my pocket (the reason I used the old tire patch kit container, heavy duty, had some give and fit nicely into my shirt pocket) and you could twist it together, though soldering it, or getting someone to solder it would be better.

I know radio shack carries a talking multi-meter, which would do the job along with numerous others as well

That's assuming one has a pair of eyeballs around which are able enough to
see colors.

i picked up a phone/rj45/coax cable tester a few years ago at the national
convention nfb market for about $20 but that still doesn't avoid wasting
wire when you are too stubborn to ask somebody.

You could probably make one of those by hand. use two clips, and attach a
beeper. You can send a current through and when the circuit is complete,
the beeper will go off. Now that doesn't solve your problem of matching up

on the terminals, but it does help.

As long as you trim off enough wire coating to let the wire fit the
terminal end. making the crimp is no problem.
Also as long as you have the wire for each hole the same on each end. If
not for a paid job site, who cares the color.
They do make tools that beep when each end is the same.
had to make network setups in college and it was a blast. The instructor
let me help the sighted ones in class, because they messed up to much.

Hello Haden:

    I have made a few network cables with sighted help. There is no
independent way to figure out the wire colors. Some of the wires have a
white stripe, so the blue wire is different from the blue-white wire.
Once you get the wires in order and trimmed, it is possible to slip on
the plug and crimp it, but a sighted person should look through the plug

to check.

Robert

Hi all. We are making network cables in a class I am taking. To be
specific, they are straight through cables. Can anyone provide any info

on how I can do this particularly identifying what color each of the
wires are. Is there a factor that will identify it?
Thanks for any help.
Haden
