Anyone used the cheap China imported labels, I just don't see how they can do ten cartridges of heat shrink tube for £32.11 compared to the UK market price of between £6 to £8: Tubing Tape Heat Shrink Tube Brother P-Touch Label Maker Shrinkable SLEEVING | eBay - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tubing-Tape-Heat-Shrink-Tube-Brother-P-Touch-Label-Maker-Shrinkable-SLEEVING/254526447999?epid=2264555828&hash=item3b42f5617f:m:miTYo-L9QrqiU-MV59S51-Q

Anyone used them?
Not tried the heat shrink, but the label cartridges now are of a quality quite similar to the official Brother ones.

Why not just buy 5 catridges from that seller for £16.05 delivered?

Anyone know the shrink ratio on these, also is the size on the flat or the dia? Found this on the web: This genuine Brother 5.8mm HSe-211 heat shrink tube tape is designed specifically for permanently marking and identifying cables and wires. With a shrink ratio of 2:1, the HSe-211 black on white tape is recommended for use with cables between 1.7mm and 3.2mm in diameter.

I did use a hot air gun very carefully (one used to strip paint), till it broke of old age.

I did get one of those or something very similar. Couldn't work out how to get the gas in.

Got one of these, if you have the heat right down and careful. Plus you can do a Crème brûlée.

I have one of those as well, but the lack of flame control gives me the shivers, the mini I posted the link too has a fitting that should control the flame/heat a bit better, ah well I have persuaded myself and hit the button, will post if it's any good, but wont if I have wasted my money and made a fool of myself, again. LOL

Ohh Crème brûlée I feel a cook in coming on.

I thought that was where my version was going to end up, but after a bit of perseverance it works quite well, the fact that it's flameless gives a bit of confidence when using it in a confined space, it has enough heat to use the guard and protect everything around it, quite pleased as it was cheap enough.

You don't have to shrink down the heat-shrink tubes, we use the tubes all the time to ferrule wires in substation control panels and never shrink them.
