Small heat gun for heat shrink on wiring harness?


Well-Known Member
I have a normal/largish Milwaukee hear gun, but it seems a little large to use on heat shrink in a small wiring harness close to a connector (where I can't separate the wires very far.

You guys have a recommendation for a small heat gun?

I mean yeah I could use a lighter, but I'm at a point in my life where I can afford to buy the right tool for the job.

A small butane torch is precise for solder and heat shrink, Practice first.

there are several tips you can get for a quality heat shink gun. one of my Fav's is a deflector that keeps the heat concentrated in one area of the harness
