You can buy a kit on line and do it your self, fairly easily!

I've seen people use the swages used for fishing lures to fix them too.

I used to use bike brake cables and made my own swages out of copper car brake line, which worked okay, but thinner, more flexible cables would have been better. These days, however, all the cool kids are using thin cord to replace the whole lot. You just need to drill out the holes in the cam lobes that the wires go through, and maybe the holes in the triggers. It works great.

I took Mikl's suggestion of using wipper snipper nylon. Cheap, easy, and durable. $5 will get you enough length to do a lifetime of cams.

driling out lobe be a good on the bigger cams but more concerning on the small aliens.
