My first attempt at sleeving

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I have to say, it is not the most professional job and not the highest quality sleeving but I am very satisfied with my job and also very satisfied with the way it looks.

I should also point out that

I bought. I think it's a great deal--you get 4 sizes of a ton of sleeving for only $10. But the heatshrink that comes with the kit sucks. The one I use personally for sealing up soldering jobs is a lot better, but I didn't have one large enough for sleeving.

I didn't bother sleeving the entire cable since I would only see 2 inches of it anyways. Plus I could save the sleeving for later.

Good job! I have always wanted to sleeve my cables but in too lazy lol. Is sleeving super time consuming like it seems like it would be?

For me it did not take long because I did not cut the cable and re-solder it on. I just sleeved it right over the header. In fact, if I were to do it again I would probably finish faster since this was my first time doing it.

For the length that I did, all of these cables took roughly 20 minutes. Give or take.

What size did you use for the usb(?) header and how easily did it go over the connector?

I used the second largest size in the kit for the internal USB header. I have no idea what the actual size is. It went over pretty easily, since the sleeving expands when you compress it.

check out paracord. looks sexy in my opinion. also, may want to overlap the heatshrink onto the connector so you cant see wires.
