scrap serial cable source?

    Hello, I'm building custom cables that require a db9F serial connector. The
    most economical solution is to find a double-ended db9F cable, which I cut
    in half to produce two cables. Does anyone know of a source for scrap
    cables like this in Canada? I'm trying to keep my costs as low as possible.
    Thanks.

  2. Andre,

    Go to http://www.excess-solutions.com/round_cables1.htm and look at item
    ES2407. It's a DB-9F to DB-9F 6 foot cable for USD 2.50. Pretty cheap for
    two three foot cables, huh? I've ordered from these guys before; they have
    a USD 25.00 minimum. You'd have to use UPS 3-day shipping to Canada, but it
    doesn't seem too outrageous.

    Hope this helps,
    Eric
