    Help Cable Builders
    Where can I find this type of expandandable Silver cable sleeving?
    By the foot to start and possibley by the roll later. If hot knife is needed no problem. Also of course, the cheaper the price the better....
    Making new Bi-wire sets and looking for this "color and type braided sleeving"...
    Also any recommended heat shrink tube that you may have found to work better than others for termination, from braid to Spades and Bannanas?
    And where to find it?
    Thanks
    Geoff

    P.E has multiple colors of nylon braid in thier newest
    catalog. They also have some sort of nikel plated copper
    braiding (similar to what you see on high performance car
    hoses like Aeroquip but it's not stainless steel)
    As far as Heat Shrink, the best is Polyolefin, I buy mine
    from Radio Shack online but I am sure there are cheaper
    options out there somewhere. Polyolefin has a fairly high
    shrink ratio (2:1 or more) and stays completely flexible
    when cured, like rubber..
    These are my 12Awg Bi-Wires that I made using Sound King
    12Awg 99.999% OFC and the color coded heat shrink on the
    terminated ends is Radio Shack Polyolefin. The shiny piece
    is Radio Shack PVC heat shrink (non flexible)

    Thanks guys..
    Brett
    I just got another Big Catalog from PE (have wholesale business with them) and I can't find the stuff in their anywhere!
    This catalog just came last week,,, and at the top it says (Catalog #21)!
    If this is the same catalog you have, what page?
    If it's not the same catalog, what the part # and what is the catalog#?
    Also is it up on their web site?
    I remember seeing it awhile ago in one of my catalogs, but it's not in this one. "At least I can't find it"...[​IMG]
    They where selling it in 25ft lenghts I belive, that was in the catalog that I did see it in.
    Thanks
    Geoff

    Geoff, unfortunately you have an old catalog. Ask them to send you catalog #22. Then look on page 80 for the flex wrap. Also, I got this new catalog 2weeks ago...I wonder why they sent you an old one? [​IMG]

    Hey Dan
    Aha, ya!
    Just got off the phone with my brother of whom I sent my NEWEST catalog home with last week!!!! Figured that out real quick when I asked him the catalog #.. URRRRGGGGGG [​IMG]
    The #21 catalog I pulled out of my mag rack and just assumed it was my new one, wrong!!! I new I remeber seeing sleeving in a catalog and assumed it was this one. So he's gona drop it back off this week sometime. He lives aways away and I'll just wait till then.
    Went to PE's site and can't find any sleeving on line yet so must be a new item or their not choosing to put it up on site.
    Dan or Brett, seeing as you have the book might you answer a few questions.
    I just called my brother back and he's gone and I can't get the information I need.
    =======================================
    Is the PE wrap a sleeving with velcro, or a slide on like Techflex PTE or Tech-Mylar???
    What color or colors?
    I think I remember gold/bronze or silver not sure though, obviously....:bl
    Do the have different sizes,? I looking for 3/8" or 9mm
    Do they say what it's made of?
    Also is it sold in 25-ft sections, or buy the ft?
    Sorry for all the questions, guess I need not loan my catalogs anymore!....
    Thanks
    Geoff
    Edit: Well Brett was answering my questions while I was posting them. You a mind reader too!,
    Thanks man!![​IMG]

    The colors are black, red, carbon, white, orange, neon green, neon blue, and neon yellow.
    As Brett said, yes they do have 3/8" wraps as well as many other sizes. That info is for the "slide on" flex wrap...part numbers 082-300 through 082-410 in even numbers.
    If you were looking for velcro closing wrap then that comes in 3/4", 1.25" and 2" diameters with 6ft and 12ft lengths of each size. Part numbers 082-412 through 082-422 again in even numbers.
    Both styles are made of monofilament polyester yarn.
    Any other questions for Brett and myself? [​IMG]

    Dang you Dan you beat me to it again!
    *Grumbles*
    LOL
    Geoff all I have left to add is... "What Dan said!"
    P.S: "Monofilament Polyester Yarn" in laymens terms is
    Nylon [​IMG]
    I love this nylon braid stuff it's so dang useful for making
    pretty cables heck you can even make generic cables look
    like boutique jobs [​IMG]
    As for Heat Shrin, P.E also has quantity buys of Polyolefin
    heat shrink tubing, cheaper than I paid from the Rat Shack.
