A blow drier may work - never tried one. I use a cigarette lighter and wave
it under the shrink tube until it shrinks completely. Be careful not to get
it too hot or it will melt. A quick bit of practice and you'll figure out
the right speed and distance to do the job perfectly. If you've never used
shrink tubing, you're gonna have a ball. It's one of those simple minds,
simple pleasure things - it's just neat to watch it shrink down and conform
to the item inside it.
blow dryer if it's warm enough, heat gun much better. Lighters and
torches work if you are **very** carefull. I'd try a high intensity
lamp before a flame. The quartz lamps put out quite a bit of rdiant
heat. A reflector like a piece of foil will block heat from other
plastic while the tube shrinks.
