    I don't know how they'd react to that, we just use them for backups at the moment. We do plan to use them in a more 'high-traffic' environment soon though.

    Making cables is not fun, the last one I did started at 2m and ended up 6 inches!!
    Next time start at 5m and you may get there..... :-)
    I know its a pain when you stick it on the test meter and its not right, but with some pratice.......

    Plus by buying them it means they have been tested and certified.

    A simple end to end wiremap test is not good enough.

    we get pupils to make them, and they test them too.
    Out of about 100 made only one was bad,
    teamwork is the way forward!

    I've just ordered a load from http://www.comms-express.com/

    75 x 1m grey plus some 2m and extra green ones for printers and a 20m bright Orange one!

    If I had the time I'd love to buy a colour for each one of our main IT Rooms and colour code the Patch Cabinet so when I walked in I could see instantly what was for where. But for now that's just limited to servers and printers.
