Boom Buddy: Integrated boom cable system

With a little downtime this past week. I started a project I've been putting off for a long time. Building an integrated, light weight and functional cable/comm system for my boom ops.

Now, I won't pretend to be the first person to think of this. Remote Audio has produced a product identical to this for many years. In fact this project of mine is completely compatible with the old BoomBox v1. This "Boom Buddy" uses the same connections and pinout.

All component parts were sourced through Markertek, the aluminum project box provided through frys, screws and misc parts sourced from Home Depot. I estimate the total construction here to be around $30 not counting labor.
