Cable Sleeving Tools.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey,

Just wondering what is the best way to cut cable sleeving? I was using sicsors but didn't always get the cleanest cuts. Someone said Wire Cutters?

Also are heatguns best for the shrink? I used one, but it seemed to effect the sleeving abit, maybe i was too close.

REALLY sharp scissors work best. Yea, just move that heat gun back a bit...apply heat gradually and dont overdo it.

Try something like this:



They give the cleanest cuts.

And for the heatshrink, you can try a lighter if you are using black heatshrink.

What my friend used to do was, he would get sharp scissors and heat them up. Then, he would carefully cut the sleeving, This way it cuts smoother and doesn't scratch the sleeving.

Reflector - easily bend materials you heat
Hot Blower Head - for effective shrinking of cables and more (good for heatshrink?)

Nope, all you need is a lighter...this will probably burn the shrink and the sleeve.
