    once I figured out the best way to cut the braided sheath (tape it and use a fine tooth hacksaw blade pulling by feel till I got through the wire) (very carefully). and then drilling out fittings to 19/64 made working with it easy. looks great, reall

    I would use it again for its eye apeal.

    Reply From SHV: Thanks Cliff, here's a tip: the metal braided cords can be cut through the same way you would cut through our cloth covered cords: tape if off with masking tape (to prevent frays), then cut right through it with the cutter blade on the wire stripper. To strip, you can use a basic razor blade or peel back and cut with scissors. The metal strands are extremely fine and fairly easy to cut through, not much harder than the cloth braiding.
