thanks guys, ordered
I haven't bought from them (yet), but another supplier that looks useful is http://www.futurlec.com/Cable.shtml
They sell by the metre (from $0.25), 1.5mm to 20mm in 5 colours, and delivery charges don't look too bad.
They sell other useful stuff too, although the range is limited.
Also do prototype PCB manufacture http://www.futurlec.com/PCBService.shtml
Dave www.futurlec.com.au overs great value. Their postage is also great .
But you need to allow a realistic time for delivery. Also sometimes they delay the delivery when something is out of stock. They aren't very proactive in keeping you imformed.
For all there faults futurlec remains my first place to purchase components.
Im wondering if anyone wants to get a 100m roll of 11mm clear heat shrink for $14.93. Basically the deal is for 1 or 2 rolls it is $51.43 but for more than 2 it is only $14.93 per roll. this stuff is perfect for using with strips.
At the same time the 3mm black is only $11.76 for 100m roll if bought in 3 rolls or more
So PM me if your interested, seems like a big saving if bought in 3 or more rolls, im keen to get boith clear 11mm and the black 3mm
Watch out for shipping cost. Free shipping with 1-2, shipping is not free for 3+
Just noticed that snuck in at the bottom. Thanks
So works out if using EMS shipping if you buy 11mm clear:
1 roll = $54 (china shipping)
2 Rolls = $148.05
3 Rolls = $108.39
so for 3 rolls that equates to $36.13 a roll, still a damn good price.
This would be most advantagous for people who would be going to the Sydney mini or the Brisbane mini as i could take it with me to them and save any extra shipping from me. I chose EMS so i would at least know i would have the heat shrink in time for the Brisbane mini and was only a couple dollars more.
I received my Ali express order.
No roll, just shoved in a packet, still great value though
Any one have some excess they wish to sell . Save me buying 100m rolls if so.
cheers Boof63 ???
I would be interested in some clear as well if anyone has extra.
Most Electrical whole sellers (Turks, TLE, Rexell, L&H) sell a variety of simple lengths in different colours, or Jaycar is always another good one, just picked me up another box of variety heatshrink for $20.00,
I found HobbyKing to be the cheapest I could find. 0.35c per metre.
compared to Jaycar at $2.16 for 1.2 m
In America this is where I get mine.
100 Ft 3/8" ID (9.5mm) Clear Polyolefin 2:1 Heat Shrink Halogen-Free RoHS cULus
for $18.99 free shipping
Sorry to drag up an old topic, but the need for Heatshrink still exists.
Does anyone know of a good supplier for bulk Heatshrink,
Thanks in advance
I just use aliexpress and buy bulk rolls - usually 50m or 100m depending on diameter. It just takes a while to arrive.
try this guy he is in brisbane hope it helps
