Youtube channel engineerable just finished his cable railing project with Fayevorite 1/8″ stainless steel threaded stud terminal ends and Fayevorite 1/8″ stainless steel stemballs swages. He made a video review for cable railing kit and tools. He also introduced how to install cable railing kit. It is great. The video is fantasic.
“Part 1 in my series on installing stainless cable deck railing on the cheap.
This is the stainless cable deck railing hardware that I purchased. This was the cheapest price that I could find and appears to be the same quality as the hardware sold by other brands on Amazon.
$219.77 for 1000 Ft 1/8″ 1×19 Cable Rail Korean Made Wire Stainless Steel 316
$96.99 for 100 Pack Stainless Steel Threaded Terminal Tension Stud End for 1/8 Cable
$98.99 for 100 Pack Stainless Steel Stemball Cable Dead End for 1/8 Cable
Total Cost for hardware was only $415.75 which is $1000’s less than buying from cable railing retailers. The main savings are the cable terminals. Cable railing retailers sell their terminal sets at prices upwards of $10-$15 a pair. The ones I bought cost less than $2 a pair. That adds up quickly when you have a lot of deck corners that weren’t designed for cable railing, and therefore need to terminate the cables at each corner.”
