Hi Guys

Where can I find some braided sleeving for the servo wires, the flexible kind not the stiff sleeving like HK sales and what size is needed?

P.S. sorry for the spelling or the grammar I am dyslexic!

B&E Electronics has stores in Western Canada. Not sure about the east? They have a website you could order from though.

I can find places where they sell sleeving but it as to be the flexible kind, in most of the ads they just say (sleeving for wiring) I do not what the stiff sleeving, I have some and hate it! and what size is best?

P.S. sorry for the spelling or the grammar I am dyslexic!

I use 4mm for single servo leads and 6mm for double leads. The stuff I found (from overseas) is flexible. I cut it to length and then run a lighter under the cut ends to prevent unraveling as I work it over the connectors.

Possible alternative? Use the coiled wrist strap material from cheap keychains. Super easy and does a pretty good job of bundling the wires.

How about this:

Other sizes are available also. Digikey is very easy to deal with - great service.

You might check out this place. This is where I usually have shopped in the past

I generally cut it a bit short and apply shrink tubing at each end to keep it looking neat.

Thay got a place up here in Canda and I order some from them, I order the 1/8 polyester and it is not as flexible as I thought and a bit too small, I can install it, but a hell job! I am going to reorder some 1/4 inch, just wonder if the nylon is more flexible?
