    My advice (even though you didn't ask for it) is if you can still pay all your bills and live a comfortable lifestyle I'd say go for it. You only live once and might as well do something that you love and get paid for it in the process.

    That’s because I know you enjoy the finer things in life.

    Also because Brittfarticus. :anonymous:

    You have your need and I gave you the solution. For the record I also gave a affordable solution also. :D

    Or do what the pros do and have a dedicated rig that does exactly what you desire in both separately.

    It would be out of here. Bahamas if someone wants but his goal is to have 5 or 6 so eventually I would be like the GM running all of them.

    Superglue is the dumbest invention ever created. The only thing it is good for is sticking your fingers together. Fuck superglue

    @Pchop I see you have a storm headed your way, the numbered kind you don't worry about too much, but still looks like ti could give you a bit of a lashing.

    what about tie wraps? :spy: for the record in my past work, hated tie wraps that were not cut properly so they leave no sharp end. They are quick & handy, but for telecom work we still use string. Takes less space, can really get bundles tight together, and is an artform when done properly.

    I’m sure some scissors and zip ties would be able to get your fingers apart. :cool:

    A tie wrap on a broken stone coaster to sit your drink on wouldn't be ideal. I've not found one single thing that superglue is good for except, as mentioned before, sticking your fingers together or closing a cut on your finger lol. It excels at those two things.

    I use to use contact cement when I’d cut my hand installing Formica.

    A coaster that my daughter accidentally dropped. I've let it sit for 24 hrs and I can literally break it apart with little to no effort. I've tried almost every brand available and none work.

    just search telecom cable lacing, or cable stitching.

    here is the type of string that is used, - waxed, polyester string.
    https://www.amazon.com/WAXED-LACING-POLYESTER-TENSILE-STRENGTH/dp/B00IYOW2ZU

    and look up cable dressing - you can get 'combs' to deal with untangling bundles, but your five fingers work just as easily.

    Its kinda nasty if you work with it all day. The wax dries your skin out, and pulling the string tight digs into the inside folds of your fingers. There are stitching tools we use to sneak the thread through tight spaces.
    https://tecratools.com/pages/telecom/cable_tools.html

    Fiber cables are easier, but much more delicate at times - no string or zap straps allowed - use Velcro, and trays to store slack. Scissors still involved though. A riser cable with bundles of fibers is protected by a fiberglass rod to limit the bend radius and Kevlar strands to protect against abrasion. Those Kevlar strands are nasty to work with as well, kinda like fiberglass wool.

    So, could this be used to tidy-up the wiring in the attic of a house before reinsulating? Planning on adding some blown fiberglass this winter. I would rather have everything in cable tray, but that's a bit expensive. I also don't want a fire hazard. Thanks in advance for the info.
