If one wants an end on a small wire cable, choke, throttle, shut down, etc., it is easily done by getting an appropriate size bolt, saw a ‘wire’ size cut in the end, insert said wire in the end, clamping in a vice between two blocks of wood and crank away ‘til you have the length you want. It will take some prying to get the wire out of the slot, which can be removed if necessary.
