Actually the simplest way is to go to www.stonewallcable.com and order
the type and length you want.
They have all the specs, do an excellent job, and are very reasonable as
far as price.
When we were building large scale lab layouts for classroom environments,
they were super helpful in making life simpler!
Just a suggestion,
Bruce

  If you only have DTE cables, you could find some cheap DSU's and connect
  them with a T-1 crossover cable (flip 1-2 and 4-5 pairs) and it'll work
  wonders!
  
  However, if you don't have those lying around, getting back to back db60's
  really isn't all that expensive these days!

  If you have old V.35 DCE & DTE cable types, connect them back to back and
  you got the answer. splicing 2 V.35 DTE cables will be time consuming and
  unreliable as there are 60 pins you need to mess with.

    Does anyone know how to make a back-to-back serial cables using old 
    V.35
    -> DB60  cables by splicing them together ? (or if it's even possible)
    
    Thanks!
