Spiral cable wrap/binding

I have a thick (~2.5" dia) bundle of cables on my RIB that I want to protect and tidy up so I was looking for a length, probably ~5 metres, of the largest available spiral cable binding. None of the chandlers around here seem to sell it. So I went online and found this. Perfect - 1" ID and (aptly) 'ribbed' for extra strength (and pleasure? ). Except when I called about the price, I got a bit of a shock - 45/metre (apparently they sell it for aerospace applications).

Then I found this - 12.7mm OD at 30 for 30 metres. Good enough but I don't need 30 metres.

So - I thought - Barnet Marine. Called them up and yes - they will sell by the length at 5/ft - so my 5 metres would come to ~80

So I've gone back to www.toolboxshop.com and ordered the 30 metre coil (in black).

Now I won't need more than 5 metres so I have 25m available to pass on to RIBnet members, which I'm happy to do at 2/metre incl. postage (or 30 if anyone wants to take the whole lot).

Oh - and if Lawrence (Barnet Marine) reads this, I don't mind paying for stuff but >1600% mark-up is a bit steep.

Thanks for your bids guys. This is public response including to peeps who pm'd me.

I haven't got the stuff yet so I'll post again when it arrives. Then if you could pay by paypal to ebay@spring-uk.net that would be easiest.

Oh, and send me your postal address (if not already done) by pm.

I have bids for 13m so far so there's 12m left (depending on how much I use). First come, first served. Just post your bids on the public board for now.

good on you for finding a source, is it UV and fuel proof?
Just wondering for when I get onto the next project!

I dunno. At 1/metre I don't really care if it has to be replaced after a year or two.

Guys - the spiral wrap has arrived and looks just the job. I have also (for Jelly) spoken to the manufacturer and confirmed it is fuel and oils resistant and UV stable.

I have the following orders so far:

Chewy - 3m
JSP - 5m
Blackroady - 5m
Steve Waters - 10m
Total - 23m

I obviously need to make sure I have enough for myself which I should be able to do this w/e. Then I may keep a couple of metres spare but the rest is available to the above or others if any of the above don't go ahead.

Please send Paypal (preferably) payment at 2/metre to ebay[at]spring-uk.net. If you cannot do Paypal, call me on 07836 762788. Also send me your mailing details by pm or use the above email address.
