RE: DIY ribbon power cords?

Hi Tireman,

Thanks so much for the info!

If it's not too much trouble, could you explain how you managed to connect the ribbons to the AC plugs? Did you just fold them to get them to fit into the screw terminals, or did you solder a very short wire to the end of each to allow connection to the plugs, or something else altogether?

Since I have some plugs and plenty of ribbon, I figure I may as well give it a try. Also, to insulate with teflon tape, did you just wrap the tape around the ribbon and then slide the wrapped ribbon into the heatshrink?

Thanks so much again,
