Building and Terminating My Own TriWire Cable


I recently read the article in TAS (April/May 2004, p. 56) where the HD-14G cable was lauded. I am interested in building my own set of these cables in TriWire configuration. However, this is my FIRST DIY project and I am a little lost. My concerns:

What is inside the jackets? Two color coded wires (black/orange)?

How do I terminate them? Will three wires fit into one banana or spade?

What do I use to cut them to length? An OJ knife or is there a special tool?

Am I overlooking anything????

Thanks in advance, guys!

I'll let everyone know the results. I am still a bit skeptical, but I want to prove this for myself.
