Custom Cable Wire

I know websites out there exist that sell custom ready cables, I want to make my own for the looks and better cable management.

I'm looking to find cheaper prices for the 16AWG wire, does anyone know if there's anything good on Amazon?

I'd prefer if they come in spools of at 50 feet+. This 25 feet of wire for $5+ isn't worth it

This is where I bought all my stuff. I don't recommend buying tools from sites like this though. I would go to home depot and buy legit tools, especially wire strippers. Get a legit pair of automatic strippers. Or, if you're really good, you can use these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0058ECBQY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I'm a fan of cutting tweezers, especially for small gauge wires. For your crimpers, if you get ratcheting, they are going to be expensive, but you'll get the same crimp every time. If you get manual, they'll be cheaper but it'll rely on your wrist strength and endurance and skill at crimping... I made all my own cables, feel free to ask as many questions as you need if you would like advice. I also worked in the cable department of an electronics company assembling random test equipment cables for a while, so feel free to pick my brain.
