Title:

Can you make your own 'end nipple' on a braking cable?

Text:

Those cylinders at the end of cables break off sometimes. Is there some cheap way to replace it? I tried tying it around a little metal 'wheel'. That seems to work. But might be too big to fit in some brake levers.

* If the question is not clear, tell me. It's a hard question to translate from Dutch!
