    works with IEC power cables and telephone wire and so many others. i like ribbon cables too.

    great way to stock your junk drawer

    if you can snag some 200pair telephone cable its great for breadboards. just get an axe and cut chunks in 6", 8", 12" lengths.....

    Works well if you're in europe, not so much in north american. But you can do the same thing with serial and parelel computer cables.
