Heatshrink Question

Chris Hopkins

Recommended Posts

Most heatshrink will shrink to a little less than half its original diameter. If you pay some more, you can get some that will shrink to a third its original diameter. If it doesn't say, it's a safe bet that it's 2:1 heatshrink and not 3:1. Measure the bits you have to heatshrink - you need to buy heatshrink whose original diameter is bigger than what you want to heatshrink, and whose shrunk diameter (be it half or a third the original diameter) is smaller than what you want to heatshrink.
