Two layers of heat shrink provides a decorative and durable insulation for the shafts of long screwdrivers! You need to make sure it is well pressed up against the screwdriver handle so no bare metal shows at the top, and initially the heat shrink should be about 4mm too long. Once the two layers have been evenly shrunk on, you spin the screwdriver while holding a craft knife, "Stanley" knife or razor blade just behind the working surface of the screwdriver blade to cut the insulation off at the right height with a clean edge. smiley - geeksmiley - ok

(I have a bundle of sleeving lying behind my keyboard as I type this, both black and red, in two sizes. smiley - wow)
