I'm buying some stuff from elexp.com and I thought I'd pick up some heat shrink tube. I can choose from sizes 1/16", 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2". I want to buy 2 or 3 different sizes - which ones should I get (that I'll use the most often)?

Generally. you get the size that fits the wire you will be using. 1/2"? The started motor on my motorcycle uses smaller wire than that.

There really isn't a lot of use for heat-shrink tubing with Arduino projects.

I guess I'll be working mostly with 22 AWG solid-core wire. What size should I get for that? 1/8"?

It seems like 1/16" would do well for 22 AWG. Can anybody confirm this?

I've never used anything < about 1/8th" (not that i've ever actually measured it), the stuff shrinks a heck of a lot.
