    Why don't you just buy a PS/2 extension cord?

      it might, the signal might get corrupte...if the cable runs through a piece of ferrite it might help to keep the 1 at 1 and 0 at 0...it's the small bumps on the cords you see, check your pc-screen signal cable

          They are based on capacitance, but the paint would quickly wear away I would think. I extended a ps/2 keyboard with phone wire to about 15 ft, and it worked just fine, but I would think a mouse would be much more subject to noise.

              You can get PS/2 extension cables from almost anywhere. I've used them on keyboards without any trouble.

              Just plugged a 6-footer into the mouse and don't see any difference. (MS Intellimouse & ABIT KG7-R)

              I'd suggest against a do it yourself cable, as there's probably a shielding and wrapping pattern that should be followed. Plus, it's a lot of work when you can buy a pre-made cable for $3...
