Post Repairing Hamsticks
I've a few hamsticks that need repairing. The fitting has become lose, and the wire connection is intermittent.
I was going to reapir these, but what can I re-cover them with?
First thoughts would be heat shrink, but I have not found it available in long enough lengths (except from RS Components). where can I get it, and is there a better alternative?

thanks.

I see plenty on ebay - first look was 3m of 20mm for £6
If you can get to a rally mind, thats one thing you can usually bank on, a stall with rolls of the stuff
