Colour coded...That solves that issue quickly.
if you look carefully you will see the wires are marked.
We didn't see that specific pic and hence the thread went off on a tangent...LOL
Another tangential aspect of the thread has now been dealt with.I have 2 fluke meters, thanks anyway.
Very nice BTW...I'm jealous.
Maybe it will help with "cancelling out electromagnetic interference (EMI) from external sources" to some extent. I'm not totally convinced that it is essential by any means....however, it certainly can't hurt anything.So twisting the wire is purely for looks and does nothing at all to cleaning up the signal or whatever reason they use twisted pairs in an Ethernet cable.
Here is an interesting diagram of the theory...just for fun and educational purposes:
Personally, I think you would be totally fine either way.I find it hilarious that everyone says to use lamp cord for a cab. lamp cord is 18 gauge. This stuff is 18 gauge, and if i really want to be safe I could solder the wires like the pic below. Which was my original question
