The image above shows an Electro Wire Stripper that might be very useful for all of us.
“For years we’ve used razor blades to do this, as the tiniest wires don’t have a slot on our trusty wire strippers. But often we cut all the way though the conductor (or many of the strands) when doing so.”
If setup correctly, it can be very precise and give feedback telling when the blades have cut deep enough, and this is how it could be used:
- Sight down the blades.
- Align the blades with where the wire should be stripped.Move the wire into the blades having the blades cut into the insulation.
- When the blades cut through the insulation and contact the wire the LED will light.
- Spin the wire or the tool to cut the insulation completely around the wire.
- Remove the wire from the tool and pull off the insulation.
This is a really cool and clever hack! What do you think?
