  1. Hi, Being an Ex Engineer & knowing how good the Black & Tan cable was, I'm trying to get hold of some in civvy st but cant find any, Can get Don10, but would like black and tan.
    Can anyone help?, any Sigs out there????
     
  2. A journo writing an interesting article on cable?
     
  3. R4 is better, and it has scrap value, mind you it depends on what you want to do with it.
     
  4. Hey Many Thanks, I see on their site they actually got the stuff but....

    DEF 61-12 PT 17 Special Purpose Demolition Cable For Detonator Firing Circuits.
     
  5. Why not use this stuff.
     
  6. Failing the above, how good would R4 be for the job?
     
  7. Cool, its cheap & does the job, Many Thanks :)
    Only thing is is that the B&T cores are twisted around each other making it less likely to pick up interference, which is a bonus for speakers.
    But tryin not to sound ungrateful, as your help muchley appreciated.

    Many Thanks
