How To Lace Cable Harnesses

Tie-1 Before nylon cable ties, bundles of cables were held together by waxed nylon cord. It’s still a nice way to to do harnesses in tight spaces, and, I think, looks much more elegant than nylon ties. It’s almost a lost art- few people under 50 know how to do it! (google “waxed lacing cord” to find sources of cord). Thanks Rob! Link.

  1. I have somewhere, a NASA publication that includes that page, as well as soldering techniques, and so forth. It’s excellent, although I’m not sure if it’s still in print. I’ve posted a picture of some laced cables on Flickr here .
