Right size heat shrink tubing
« on: April 14, 2018, 11:23:34 AM »
I searched for an answer but did not find what I need. I have Ray Wu's 3 core pigtails and need to know what size heat shrink tubing is right for the 3 internal wires and for the outside sleeve?

Thanks

I use 1/8 for the individual wires, and 3/8 3:1 Adhesive Lined for the outer sleeve.

I use 1/8" for the individual wires, but have never put a cover over all of them except when using coax cable rather than the 3 conductor wire like that used between the pixels.  For the coax 3/8 works fine.
