Question

Where can I get 50mm/1.5" heat shrink tubing?


I want to make a heat shrink tube pod like from Yasu's blog, but can't find a big enough tube diameter anywhere. I ordered some 2" tubing, but it was really thick and heavy. I've seen the type of tubing I want, but it seems to only come in small wire-size diameters. Anyone know where I can find tubing like in Yasu's blog?

Battery places! I went to Fry's electronics here in SoCal but no luck. I never considered batter businesses. Thanks.

I do not know the kind you are looking for but if you need the thin super light stuff, Big Apple Hobbies is where I have purchased it form. It is clear and very light weight. Shrinks good too.

I never could find it on their website but I know they have it at the store. Give them a call and they'll hook you up. http://www.bigapplehobbies.com/v/homepage.asp
