Cable sleeving, what a nightmare...
 
I decided to try and sleeve all the cables on my power supply... I'm following all sorts of guides and tips, but not having any luck. Staples, sewing needless, etc.

I'm breaking pins, my fingers are killing me and I'm on the verge of insanity.

Any experience sleevers on here? Give me some advice... or better yet, a price to do all this work for me! :)

Cheers.

get the proper tools for the job(kinda expensive though). You'll thank yourself.

I've seen them, but everywhere I read they say they break too easily...

If a set of tools like this NCIX.com - Buy Sunbeam Power Supply Tooling Kit - PMTK In Canada. is breaking, then the person isn't using it properly. :)

As soon as my fingers stop bleeding, I will order them and let you know how well they work :)

That's the kit I use, but I found that the staple trick works better to remove the atx connectors. Those tools work well for the molex and fan connectors though.

Another little trick is to melt the cut ends, then they don't unravel. I use a BBQ lighter, very carefully.
