Accessories that may assist in your fibre optic project.

Hot Knife

Hot knife. Robust hot knife with 2 inch blade ideal for trimming single fibres or bundles of fibre at a common end. Also good for clean cutting and sealing Nylon and Polypropylene rope. £35.00

Sample pack

Sample Pack
Our sample pack is intended to allow customers to get some insight into the properties of different sizes of optical fibre at the planning stage of their project. (Contains 3 metres each of 0.75 and 1.50mm unsheathed Polymer Optical Fibre and 1 metre of 1.00mm sheathed fibre.) If we have spare fibre in the workshop you may well receive additional samples in your pack. £2.50

The processing of small fibre orders involves handling and administration costs which are often out of all proportion to the value of the fibre itself - in fact, most other fibre optic firms simply don't offer this service - and this is reflected in what might appear to be a high postage and packing charge. The value of the sample pack contents actually exceeds the £2.50 shown. If you do go ahead with a project which requires the purchase of additional fibre and a light source, we will be happy to credit the cost of your sample pack towards that additional purchase.
