Received my Sunbeam PSU Tool kit today. I cant get a single ATX pin out of my AX850 for the life of me. GAHH!

I think that the HS there might be 2:1, and although it can be used it is not recommended as it won't shrink as tight as it needs to be. 3:1 should be the lowest HS ratio I would use.

Also most 550 paracord is about 3/16 already or close to it, so it would be hardish to put it on right. Not impossible just a pain.

As with the removal of pins, I can't speak for that psu tool kit. But I know some pins are harder to remove, I have a method shown on the mdpc sleeving video, where you basically wrap the wire around your finger and brace it against the pin and use the connector as leverage, first you push the pin inward then push the tool down, then follow the method. If that doesn't make sense watch the video.

I wish you luck on your sleeving, if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

Is there a place I can buy 3:1 heatshrink locally?

I am not sure, I know I never had any luck finding any where I am as its kind of a specific product. Try a hardware shop and such. I do know that the shipping was fast for the one on my sleeving guide page, and it's the cheapest I've ever seen.

Nice the one in your guide is located in DFW Metroplex. $5 shipping for me, but an hour's drive for will call. Hmmm...thinking.gif

MDPC heatshrink is 3/4" 4:1 heatshrink right? Or is it something alot smaller. I wouldnt mind picking these up if they give that tight fit that mdpc heatshrink gives. http://www.alliedelec.com/search/productdetail.aspx?SKU=6890397

You'll want something closer to 1/4".

Ouch the closest 4:1 heat shrink 1/4" is $41 per 12ft,and that's the only increment they sell by.

Would doubling up on 3/16" 2:1 look bad?

Say I shrink one cut, then over lap it with another cut and shrink it again.

The 3:1 I linked to is what you will be wanting to buy. The reason you want it to shrink tight is not only to hold the sleeve in place but so that you can put the shrink inside the connector as well, which in turn holds everything right as well as looks clean. So if you were to double it up it wouldnt fit inside the connector. If you havent watched the video guides I have made (link in my sig) I suggest you give them a look as it will make sense why you need only certian kinds.

Yeah I watched them twice.

I've decided to buy MDPC heatshrink. Also I'm going to buy the pin remover from MDPC. I filed off part of the sunbeam tool and I think I over did it. :/
