    shifter cable

    so the other night in a rampage i decided to take all the paint off my road bike with a wire wheel and didn't want to take all the parts off. needless to say i accidentally cut my rear derailleur cable. it is a shimano 105 downtube shifter to a shimano 600 derailleur for a 600 7 speed hub. Now i'm kind of sure i know how to adjust the derailleur but how do i know how tight the cable needs to be or if i need to worry about that at all.
    Thanks.

    Didn't you think a wire wheel might damage the chrome?
