    I made a cleaning rod for my Wildcat, and a friend suggested that I make a video showing how I did it.  I never did this before, but I agreed, so here it is.
    Remember it’s my 1st, so be kind with the comments :)   :), only kidding!

    “Mr.Gadgets” Ztirffritz,

80/20 is basically Legos for big boys. https://www.8020.net  We use their stuff all the time in my company to build very quick-n-dirty fixtures, machines, frames, etc.

    Posting the video is easy.  With the YouTube page open, copy the link from the address bar into the forum post.  The forum software does the rest of the work to embed the video.  You don’t need to post the HTML code for embedding it.  Just the address is all you need.  So, for example: “h ttps://youtu.be/kJ_dHHhhGks” (I stuck a space in the “https” to keep the forum software from embedding your video again)

    Interesting,  I had no idea what they were called,   Thanks.    How about the video, how did you get it to show up in the post?

    Awesome Idea. I’ll make one at my first opportunity. Thanks for sharing. 

    Where did you get the shrink wrap in a continuous length? (I looked on Amazon and all I find is 6″ length.)

Harbor Tool & Freight, but the smallest diameter is 1/4″.  Depending on the string thickness you use, it might not shrink tight enough.
    Auto stores and electronic stores also sell it. Try to get 3/16″ or smaller.

Thank you much, for the posting tutorial.  I’ll try to remember that next time.  Looks like it worked.

That looks like the stuff.  Didn’t realize HT&F had it.  Will have to pick some up, I like the green.

    I bought that spool of shrink tubing that I linked to, so now I have enough to make bore snakes for the entire forum… 😉
