    Like Alec i also ended up buying one of these rolls though 200m is a bit crazy so if any of the guys/gals in the Ipswich general area find a need for cheap 2mm heat-shrink give me a shout

    wow I have been thinking about buying some heatshring for next year and just looked at this and it is down to $18.81 for the roll but just enquiring about the size of it 2mm? what size cable would this be suitable for? is it suitable for your figure 8 speaker wire?

    Speaker cable would more so be 4mm or 5mm it usually shrinks to half its size. I use 2mm on 7/020 or 14/020 alarm cable like this stuff

    I got mine from the same place as Matt, Unfortunatly it didn't come on a nice roll as pictured,but crammed into a postpak. Might pay to ask them first

    Mine both came on a lovely roll, in which I find it difficult to keep in anywhere other then a gap between my work area and a cupboard
