Our Wire Bird Cage Kit is a specialized kit gives you the ability to build your own ultra-durable, factory quality control cables with confidence and ease. A definite “must have” for any tool nerd worth their salt.

“Bird-caging” is a crucial process thats performed prior to solder bonding a cable ferrule to a control cable. This process creates a large, knot-like (or bird cage) formation at the tip of the wire which promotes a tighter solder bond and provides superior pull-out resistance so the cable doesn’t depend solely on the solder bond.

The only tool of its kind on the planet. This kit is based off the bird cage tool used by the legendary Venhill Engineering UK in their own cable manufacturing process, with a few minor tweaks to accommodate garage/workshop use. Simple yet robust and built to last a lifetime. 

Perfect tool to compliment our Revival Cycles Signature Universal Throttle Cable Kit.

***You will need a vice to hold the jaws and clamp the cable. Then use a hammer to stamp the supplied punch to form the 'birdcage'

  • Suitable for use with: 1.5mm, 2mm, and 2.5mm dia. cable
  • Zinc-Plated Steel

Bird cage tool

Very happy with product. It’s a great satisfaction to be able to build custom cables knowing that it has been done right

Bird Cage Tool

expensive but works great! so far have used it for throttle cable for kart...I'll need to make a lot of cables for it to pay for itself but when you want custom parts it's great to make them yourself!

From our customers


100% impressed over and over again by Jeff & Co at Revival. They’re patient and kind no matter the enquiry (currently resto-modding an R100/7 and have LOTS of questions about the Motogadget rewire) and go out of their way to offer creative solutions and out of the box thinking. I will forever return and recommend Revival.

I cannot recommend Revival Cycles enough. Not only do they have a great assortment of gear and accessories but they provide superb customer service. I was having some difficulty making it work... Jeff pointed out what I was missing and also provided schematics to make it work. Thank you guys very kindly, your crew rocks.
