Built several balanced XLR cables yesterday using some Molex power supply cables I had plucked some years ago from the trash (E-Waste bin is the preferred nomenclature these days).

Cable was originally purposed for power feed to rugged computers, the sort mounted on a forklifts, etc. Three conductor 20ga in a woven shield. I've seen tighter weaves but I've also seen worse, the ~ eight foot lengths don't seem to pick up hum so far, but my testing has been cut short by some equipment malfunction.

Next up...
