Home Lat Pulldown machine issues

Hello, I made a Lat Pulldown machine at home. I used 3/16" vinyl coated metal cable and after a while the coating cracked and the cable was all kinked. Does anyone know why this would happen? Should I use 1/4" or 5/16" or do I need to lube the vinyl so the hot temps don't dry it out? I see a lot of...
