Cable Porn

On occasion, the company I currently work for does installation work. Thus, I am always keeping my eyes open for new equipment and tools to make that job easier. The cable comb seems like it is just such a thing:

Then there is this:

Which is simply amazing. It is described as “1320 Category 6 cables, dressed and terminated.”

Incidentally, there is an entire sub-reddit: reddit.com/r/cableporn for all those cable geeks that like to look at neat cabling work.

One thought on “Cable Porn”

  1. This cable comb is a very good tool. Smart design.

    What I have used for about 25 years is two one dollar hair picks.
    I bust out every other metal tine on both picks.
    Hold the bundle and insert the first hair-pick.
    Insert the second hair-pick 90 degrees rotated from the first one.
    Thread a small tie wrap to hold the two picks together.
    The wire bundle will now hold true for any length.

    Second hint: When the bundle must turn a 90 degree turn, I rotate the bundle
    a quarter turn. It makes the cable lay neatly.
