So, that had the OD's for the full cable, what about two strands?

I think you're going to have to figure that out for yourself. There's no way to tell really as we have no idea if you're talking about a pair twisted together or in some other con figuration. It'd also help if we had an idea of why you need to know. In my opinion it'd probably be somewhat reasonable to assume that two strands would be approx. half the diameter of the full cable.

well, two strands side by side or twisted would have the same width, cause at the widest point its still double the widtch of a single strand, and they won't necessarily be half the width of the entire cable, because they have lost the rubber sleeving coating which is pretty thick. THe reason i want to know is for help with purchasing techflex/heatshrink sizes.

In the case I think you've answered your own question. The smallest size Techflex that I'm aware of is 1/8" which is half the diameter of the SQ so you should know for certain that two strands will fit inside and probably won't expand the flex at all. As far as shrink goes just get an assortment, you'll find all sorts of fun uses for it anyway.

HTH,
