Okay I just got a reply back about the sleeving you posted earlier and you're right...it is multifilament. 3 filaments per strand in each braid.

Straight from Koolertek



http://www.koolertek.com/computer-pa...eving-c195.htm

Also, here are some coupon codes for Koolertek.

OVERCLOCK - 5% off

http://www.resellerratings.com/store/KoolerTek - Perfect 10/10 but only 9 reviews so far.

Also, according to Nathan Clay, Director of Operations, here's some info about when the sale will end:

I've actually not decided just yet, but I'd say it will probably be going the rest of this week.

Just let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

I believe this is still considered monofilament. I won't claim to know everything about sleeving, but all of the monofilament stuff I've messed with and received mfg samples of has been about the same composition, with minor variances in the thickness of each filament. For example, at this link you can see a ton of monofilament stuff, and its running the 3 filament per strand configuration:

http://www.altatechinc.com/fullproductline.html

Lower on the page, you'll see a multifilament product, which looks identical to a multi sample I got from another mfg. The multi stuff is almost totally non-transparent (no gaps, especially in wire bends), but with the downside of being so tightly braided that its almost completely non-expandable. However, its some of the nicest sleeving to look at....looks almost like cotton sleeving and feels about as soft. Reminds me a lot of the sleeving on a speaker wire in an old Silverface Fender Champ amplifier I used to have. Very nice stuff, just not as easy to work with. I'm still debating on whether or not we should start carrying it. The price I've sourced would be great, as cheap as the stuff we currently have, but I can only get it in black and white at that price, and I wonder about market demand, especially since we'd be buying pretty large spools of the stuff.

As far as the sleeving we offer, I think its a good product which will suit most people. Even after the sale is over, we will probably be offering it at an everyday price that is about as low.

Also, though we don't have a ton of reseller ratings, please keep in mind we've only been online since December. While we could do what a lot of companies do and post reviews for ourselves or offer discounts (bribes) for people to leave us feedback, that's just not how I like to run things. We're a small family operated business that would prefer to operate honestly and ethically, and so far that is working for us.

Ah...okay I was always under the impression that each individual piece of PET used per strand was the filament. I have some sleeving that's monofilament and it only has 1 piece of PET per strand. Maybe my assumption is incorrect....I'll take a picture later on tonight when I can see if I have a large diameter piece. The one in front of me is 1/8th and is really really really hard to see the filaments unless expanded which is hard to do with one hand to take a picture Btw, thx for responding and the coupon code

It's been a long day and I gapped on this thread until I checked all my previous posts. Here is the promised pics,I unwound one end so you guys could see more detail. Nathan's a good guy,and very helpful. We've had a good working relationship and like he said earlier in response to you that you posted,I just like how they do business,he's gone above and beyond for me several times in the past. I like giving a hand to those that help me. Pls discount the kitty hair. Shedding :/

As you can see w/ the extreme close up of sleeved wires....this is not PET nor of lesser quality. You can see no light through until you expand it. The sleeved wires btw are 18ga. and the sleeve is expanded by about .5mm. There is a piece w/ PET in the lower portion of the pic for comparison.

Nice to have the owner of a store on OCN I am loving the look of your business Nathan, I shall keep an eye on it


That sleeving looks good except for one thing - the gaps in between the groups of three strands.

Well it is definitely a good price on the sleeving and a way to get your name out there. My advice would be to get some specialty products. I really don't like PPC that much but I am forced to order them because they carry what I need. The MDPC-X crimper is very attractive to us modders but personally I don't want to spend an arm and a leg on shipping. I do like the lapping kits even though I don't plan on lapping anything. If you keep your prices how they are, your business will grow quickly and then you can rape us with high prices like PPC . Good to see another store owner on here. Good luck with the business! Don't forget to get your name on the list of modding stores. Just search "modding stores" on this site and you should find the thread.

PPC's ugh! I dealt with them one time....that was a debacle. I agree,I'll be using your shop alot more w/ a wider selection of parts Nathan. I do alot of mobo/psu connector swaps and my current source is a bit high on the prices. But,I use them because no one else has the color range they do. I'd love to see you guys expand.

@KamuiRSX: np mate,anytime I can help...

@Nathan: I left some feedback for you. Thanks again for all your help

can't wait to see! Remember to line up the heatshrink and make them all equal length! Make the end of the sleeving all the same distance away from the pin too! (1.7cm from the end of my corsair pins worked great for me. just make sure it'll still fit in the housing!)

Expect some updates to the OP soon with more tips (:
