Heat gun . I am not allowed to use a lighter in any power company facility but there is a fieplace lighter that shoots a blue flame [not like a Bic lighter but like a mini torch]. That will work but you have to make sure no one is looking.

Not being able to use a lighter, etc to shrink heat shrink is about as bad as going into a welding shop that has "No Smoking" signs up all over the place due to stupid insurance or OSHA regs in regard to flamible gasses being stored on site. I mean seriously, it's perfectly OK to use a torch and cut within say 25 feet (typical lenght of a hose) of an oxy/acet setup, but heavens forbid that you light up anything else within that same distance as it might do what the torch itself, and all the hot slag hasn't and actually cause something to blow up.....

That's almost as bad as the requirement to tie off if your working 4 feet off the floor. No mentions ever made that you typically need to climb, unsecured, to a way greater height than the 4 feet to both tie off your harness, and then again to untie it....

You're not permitted to smoke in the boilers at AEP Power plants now. It's meant to have fire in them, but no smoking. Go figure. Guess I won't let it botrher me anymore, haven't had a smoke since 10 December last year. Keith
