Ancor Marine are about the best, you see them in various chandlerys but careful as they do non heatshrink nylon ones as well (I've been caught out before).

These days I tend to keep a good stock at home which I buy from
Genuinedealz in the US, their Ancor cable is of the highest quality as well

Thanks, they look like a good source for tinned wire as well

That's handy to know, our rep's never offered anything like that. Ancor as well or another make?

heckout "Raychem" from Farnell, other suppliers like Maplinor RS might do them too. The are heatshrinkable and contain an adhesive that gives some strain relief for the crimp.

You can also get adhesive lined heatshrink by the metre, jolly useful for all sorts of other uses, I've used it on rope.

Not sure about Ancor but it's all in the book - just ask the rep!
