Butane-powered flameless hot air blower from Laser Tools

Heatshrink tubing is the professional way to insulate wires and connectors but usually needs a mains-powered heat-gun, which can be inconvenient sometimes, especially if working under the dash of a customer’s car out in the car park.

Laser Tools has launched a handy little butane-powered, hot-air blower that’s just the job. It’s small, fits in a pocket and gives instant heat just when you need it.

Easy to use, a thumb press on/off switch provides comfortable hand held use. Adjusted by a slide regulator, you can adjust the temperature to deliver the right level of heat for the job.

The 10mm diameter nozzle delivers a gentle heat that is perfect for working with heat shrink tubes. The refillable butane tank has a see-through window so you won’t run out of gas unexpectedly.

The kit also includes a useful starter set of commonly-used heat shrink sleeves. Replacement heat shrinking tube rolls available — please see Connect Workshop Consumables part numbers 37113 (4.8mm dia) and 37112 (3.2mm dia).
