    If you have a vintage airplane supplier or workshops, they often had the ability to make up cable ends and compressed swaging for wire rigging, that is more than capable of making up brake cabling to order. The same may be likely with marine suppliers, though most of theirs seem to be stainless steel cabling. The main thing is to have adjustable fittings to take up the inevitable stretch of a brake cable in service.

    Hanger nine at Moorabbin Airport in Melbourne had a cable end swaging machine, but I have the feeling that business no longer exists. I used to buy hi tensile bolts and nuts in the BSF and UNF range from there many years ago to modify for car restoration use.
