    I invented new wire stripper.

    I got about 250' of 10ga multi strand wire and got fed up after about 5-10 feet stripping by hand with a box cutter. The blade kept getting caught on the wire. I had just finished about 300' of 10ga (or 12ga) solid wire. It was so easy. Put it is a vise and pull my box cutter down and strip. I kept the blade at the same angle as the bevel on the blade and it went pretty fast. So I started thinking about some contraption to do the same thing and here it is. The actual stripping went fast, about one foot a second. But scrap cleanup and coiling copper took longer. Too bad this is only for 10ga.

    Hi Cyberdan
    It's a simple and nice tool to be used as a wire stripper. During my electrical works, I usually use the wire stripper to clear out the insulation of the wire. Where did you dispose of e-waste during the electrical works? I usually dispose of them in a garbage bin otherwise, it might be harmful to the surrounding.
