    indeed i do=) thats also why i strip most wires 24gauge solid wire and anything that is higher than that i just take in insulated no stripping 25 gauge for me lol. cat 3 wire is the highest gauge i will strip. need to find a machine that will strip 24 gauge wire cause a box cutter hurts my wrist lol=)
