icon Soldering those conductors without making them thicker at the point of soldering, without replacing insulation with some material that vendor doesn't want to see inside it's cable, soldering those two ALUMINUM foil screens all 360 degrees around, soldering those drain conductors, restoring that conductive sheath? Oh man! What a tricky job you plan!
Please suggest another option.
With best regards,
