Re: Wrapping up leads
its dead easy not to brake leads. a new lead (whether boght or home made) has a sort of natural 'shape' to it. ie if you hold one end and let it fall, it will find the position where least strain is placed on the cable. so however you wrap it up, just let it 'find' its natural curveature and tightness of wrap itself. i wrap mine around my elbow and hand, but i do it slowly and freely, letting the cable coil itself, not forcing it. and never grip them by the jacks. grip them by the cable behind the jack when coiling, and by the jack only when removing from a piece of equipment.
