This seems simple but it's got me stumped. I pulled everything off my frame and did a detailed cleanup and rebuild - looks gorgeous now. However, in the process I had to remove cable ends and pull the cables out of some housings. Now I need to thread them back through, but one of the tips is a bit frayed and won't allow me to get it started.
I tried solder but it won't flow into the strands at all, not even using a torch to make the tip red hot and using flux. Is there a special solder that does work? I just grabbed the roll I used for sweating copper pipe joints.
Other solutions? Cheap as they are I'd hate to just toss the cable, it's pretty new.
