Banded cage wire

Post by Dirtman »

Getting ready to powdercoat my cage wire and band it to the tubing. Does anyone who has done it before have any info on how close that you are putting your bands. I have the tool and the bands just not sure of the best spacing.

Not sure on spacing I think that's the individuals preference but that being said I did mine last year while motor was being built & I'll never do it again..2 different pairs of pliers I ordered & 3 different bands it was a nightmare lol.. it'll be zipties next time if I ever need to do it again
