was looking for a pair of rubber stretchers for work

i cant find them online at all.

when you terminate belden 3c cable e.g. 8770

you put a binding sleeve over the metal shielding of the cable before you crimp ferrule's on the end

managed to find the ferrule crimpers and the binding sleeves but no look finding the tool to put the binding sleeve's on

Reminds me of the title on my wife's dating site profile. Aaah, the good old days.
Sorry, can't actually help with the question though.

found what i was looking for

im going to keep looking around though as the site i found is selling them for £35-40

not paying that for something ill rarely use, ill keep borrowing someone elses
 
During my apprenticeship they were known as "F***y stretchers". Don't think the right thing would appear in a google search though....
 
i hold them up to my mouth and give it a wet blow on the inside. This goves them enough moisture to slide off, but enough to keep them in place

I'm not one for "double entendres" but I do like to slip one in every now and then....and I may have a spare helluva tool, I mean Hellerman tool, kicking around. How quickly do you need it?

they didnt have any so they sent a different item. would rather they canceld order and im avoiding them in future

edit


got full money back and an apology.

they decided the cost to collect the item was too great so said keep it if you like
