Discussion and questions related to the course Practical Motorsport Wiring - Club Level
Can someone tell me for a club day spec harness what are the most common size heat shrink labels and clear heat shrink I'd need?
You will want 1/4" heat shrink labels, and clear covering. But be careful, some brands (my Dymo for example), label the heat shrink with the "flat" size, so it requires the 1/2" for what would be 1/4" with Kroy (my other label printer). For large cables you might need 3/8" or 3/4" labels. But I can usually get by with a printed white 1/2" label for those large labels with clear heat shrink over it if I really need it.
I am currently looking at this unit on Amazon
And these are the corresponding labels...not sure what dimension they give the size relative to
So they are also showing the flat height. The key was in the description of the large size (0.645), where it said: "Size: 0.375" Diameter, 0.645" Height, 7' Length"
so get get .25" diameter, you will need a height of (.25 * 3.14) / 2 = 0.3925 (look for the next larger size), so you'll want the 0.439 size I believe.
Even then, you'll possibly need a couple, or three, different sizes.
Thanks for that David, I'll probably start with just the one size and see how i get along
