Small Hack For Opto Endstops

Here are some build pictures I took while constructing an Opto Endstop board. I added one hack to it: I soldered the wires directly to the board. I used a chunk of old Ethernet cord. I used the green pair to carry the signal (white to Gnd, green to Signal) and the solid blue wire to carry +5v.

To finish it, I'll attach a connector to the end of the wires, and then I can simply plug the opto endstop into the board it is supposed to be connected to. For some odd reason, I really dislike making cables. Probably because I dislike doing extra work (and I'm not very good at making them.) Anyway, here are some build pictures from the whole process.
