I'd like to start my first sleeving project. I'd like to know if it would be possible to sleeve without a heatgun so i won't be needing to buy one. Thanks.

Bic lighters are just fine, with a little practice.

Agreed, a lighter does the job just fine, on black heatshrink. If you are using white heatshrink, use a hair dryer because a lighter can turn the white heatshrink black if held too long, you would have to work at it much slower.

That's why I said Bic lighter. Has a tall steady flame. If you keep the shrink in the blue part of flame and move it quickly back and forth, you won't get black deposits on the shrink.

wow! That's fantastic. So I can proceed to any sleeving method with just a lighter?

Also check Lutro0's video guides http://www.overclock.net/t/1262904/video-sleeving-guide-series/ the heatshrinkless method he uses only a lighter.

Amazon has one from Wagner. this heat gun you posted has shipping and comes up to about $19. the one from amazon is about $22. is the wagner better?

http://www.amazon.com/Wagner-Power-Products-503008-200-watt/dp/B00004TUCV/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1365355995&sr=8-1&keywords=heat+gun

if your going off of watts or temperatures then the Wagner is not the better buy but that's all I could tell you.

Wagner - 2 temperature settings 750F and 1,000 degrees F

Drill Master - 2 temperature settings 572F and 1,112F

I guess you go with your gut, you can go wrong as long as it get the job done.
