Introduction: Renew Old Plier's Handle - Renovar Cabo De Alicate

I had this old pliers that needed a new handle, so this is the way I did, fast and simple:

Eu tinha esta alicate velha, que estava precisando de um novo cabo. Esta foi a maneira mais simples e rápida que achei

Step 1: Material

I used some heat-shrink tubing and a heat source

Foi usado aqueles tubos termo-contráteis, também chamados de espaguete termo-retrátil, e uma fonte de calor

Step 2: Putting the Handle

I used two layers of heat-shrink tubing in each side, you can put more if you want... But one layer at at time. After placing the tube, apply the heat source until it shrinks. And it's done!

Usei duas camadas de tubo para cada lado, você pode colocar mais se quiser mas não esqueça de contrair a camada antes de adicionar a próxima.
