Re: Rewiring Cable Marking Systems

Thanks Everyone, very helpful. I've followed up the SM Scotchcode 0-9 wirker marker on ebay. From the US it's $61 pluse another $38 delivery. Maybe i'm seeing different, but it's a similar picture.

I'm about to go purchase some clear heat shrink and some P touch 6mm laminated white tape and give that a go. So far it's my most favourite idea from you guys.

Ted

Re: Rewiring Cable Marking Systems

The P-touch labels are thermal labels? Any problem with them going 100% black in hot areas?

I ask because I've used a similar machine from Esselte (who own Dymo now) and the labels turn all black and useless if they're put in a hot, even warm, place for any length of time. The adhesive seems to hold up well, but the labels go illegible. Unless Brother uses a much hotter thermal printer, I'd hate to waste my money on another one with the same problem.

I don't know.. I'll have to try them in a hot environment and see. The tape I can use are laminated for 'wet' environment, but I don't know about the heat.

Re: Rewiring Cable Marking Systems

I use simple masking tape with a sharpie. Also make wiring diagrams.

Re: Rewiring Cable Marking Systems

I just used one of these when I recently rewired my boat:

Brother PT6100

Very easy to use. I'll let you know in a few years if the labels hold up.
