Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Cable Diagrams


Hi Liz.
I can't help yet with cable mechs, but I can transmit a tip that was 
suggested to me by a robot specialist.

I asked him what to do about bicycle cables unable to move properly when 
bent even just a little bit.
He suggested to use the same bicycle cable sleeves, but replace the inner 
cable with heavy gage monofilament (fishing line). I have not had time nor 
specific projects to try it yet, but it makes senses.

I was seeking the info for a project that never took off, but I'm pretty 
sure I'll get to try it soon.
