anybody know where i can get some good heat shrink tubing? the stuff i got from radio shack is crap, it doesn't shrink hardly at all, so it won't stay put.

find a SnapOn dealer. They sell the good stuff.

Good shrink tubing should reduce to 1/2 it's normal size. Look at electronics stores since shrink tubing is used for electrical wiring -

A search makes things easy as well........ http://www.steinair.com/hshrink.htm

A local surplus electronics store is the key. It;s where I get mine from, and is great stuff. You just have to make sure it's from a good brand. I don't remember any off the top of my head, but the people at the store should be able to help you out.

Any hardware or electronic, or automative store should have some, i would check around the net, i can check my local hardware if you want, what size are you looking for?
