cable repairs that cost nothing

Found this on youtube by accident and thought it was a pretty slick idea.

Neat, PaddyD!

Once saw a cable end rehabbed with silver solder; this video uses more commonly available materials; useful MacGyvering!

Personally, I'd have used solder vs pure lead wire like he did. Mainly because the solder is alloyed and less likely the cable strands would pull out. Still, like you say. Great MacGyver like stuff.
