    I rescued 2 large rolls of fiber optic cable, one roll had the ends still attached and one rolls optic ends were cut off, I wonder if anyone knows a way I could attach an end or use this cable in some other way, the glass wire is quite thick and when I remove the many coatings including the liquid coating the glass wire will not bend just break.
    If this is successful I will use it for laser transmission. Thanks for reading this..colum

    What kind of fiber optic is it? Monomode or Multimode? Glas or plastic?
    You need to know that to make good use of the cable.

    Hi Dave, Don't know how to post a photo yet but the ends are small optical lenses that probably enlarge or concentrate the beam and a mechanical coupling...colum

    Hi Harald. Its single glass wire that is too thick to bend and is certainly glass and I understand that a cable that can transmit an image is called coherent but this cable must be a 100 ft so I doubt it can transmit an image..I wonder if theres anyway to cut the ends and leave a flat surface for polishing..colum
