Heatshrink tubing is a professional way to insulate wires and connectors but usually needs a mains-powered heat gun, which can be inconvenient sometimes, especially if working under the dash of a customer’s car out in the car park. This handy little butane-powered, hot-air blower from Laser Tools (part number 6848) is just the job – it’s small, fits in a pocket and gives instant heat just when you need it.

Easy to use, a thumb press on/off switch provides comfortable handheld use. Adjusted by a slide regulator, you can adjust the temperature to deliver the right level of heat for the job. The 10mm diameter nozzle delivers gentle heat that is perfect for working with heat shrink tubes. The refillable butane tank has a see-through window, so you won’t run out of gas unexpectedly.

The kit also includes a useful starter set of commonly used heat shrink sleeves. Replacement heat shrinking tube rolls available – see Connect Workshop Consumables part numbers 37113 (4.8mm dia) and 37112 (3.2mm dia).

Available now from your Laser Tools stockist – always remember to check for the best prices and special offers.
