... still preserve the rubber tube that goes around it?

I need the rubber tubing for a project, and I don't want to buy any of it. I want to use a guitar cable because I have a broken one that is just the right size. If you must know, I'm using it for a hookah I'm building.

I tried googling it but it's a kind of hard thing to google for.
This is just unacceptable:

Yeah, it sounds pretty easy unless the electronics are glued to the inside of the tube.

There are some parts you will have to cut of from the tube to actually get it out in the first place. Besides that it should work fine, it's just fingerpicking work and being a guitarist you should be fine with that

You could just buy a condom.

Geez people are so cheap these days.

I've never tried to cut inside a cable but my friend tried something like that and cut the wire.

Well I will want to cut the tube in half so I have two tubes, but I cannot cut it down the length for it must keep airtight.

I don't care if the wire itself is cut. I just need the rubber tube intact.

well, you can just cut it in half, but to get the electronics out you will have to cut a couple of cm down the length, so make sure you have som spare cm when you cut it in half

Edit: and when you have it out just cut of the few cm that's not airtight and you should be good to go I have a hookah for 4 persons

^ yeah that would probably be the best solution, although a garden hose is very stiff and not that good for a hookah!

Nobody said anything about a garden hose. At most hardware stores, they have about a billlion different types of flexible rubber hose that you can buy by the inch. And to TS, why not just have a friend drive you? I still think it would be easier than trying to fish all the shit out of there.

A garden hose is so thick though! Oh well, maybe I'll try it.

Don't use a garden hose mann. Especially if it's one from around your house. It's probably full of nasty bacteria and shit. I'm telling you, go to the hardware store, and buy some rubber tubing.

Yeah, I'll still try and strip it anyway.

I have some planet sound cables which claim to have some kind of air tight seal in them, so there might be some kind of airlock which would make it really difficult to pull the wire out. Good luck though!
