    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.

    Never heard that one before, but I'm not in that industry. Kind of like crackhead dental floss huh?

    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.

    How old is the house? Normally house wiring, in the attic specifically is stapled to the tops of the joists, and where there is a risk of stepping on them , 1x4 strapping is added beside them. I imagine the wiring was not run neatly in the attic crisscrossing wherever?

    Evil term for any wires or cable besides actual house electrical lines.

    Or I should say for any low voltage line to be more specific.

    It’s 21 years old. But the A/C guys did some stuff when a new unit was installed. Not happy with it but I’ll just deal with it. Most of the wiring is stapled, but when the new unit was installed they had to skid it in place and they removed some staples to prevent damage. Nothing major. I would like it better.

    True, residential, and wood construction commercial is the only.place that use that kind of wire and 'staples'. Industrial is either in conduit, flex, or teck cable and clamped in place.

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    Super glue has lousy shear strength. If you can twist your fingers at the glue spot they will free easily.

    I use it a lot in woodworking and it also puts a mighty fine finish on pens
