Hopefully I put this in the right section, couldn't really think of a better place. Since you guys all enjoy machining, I was hoping someone would be able to help.
As most of you know, the price for bare copper is amazing. My father and I usually have a ton of it laying around that is scrap. Because he is a low voltage electrician (phone, tv, internet type of things), we have tons of small wire laying around. I know the coaxial cable is worthless without being stripped because the local places won't take it at all.
Obviously doing this much wire by hand would be tedious and barely worth it, I was wondering if any had built a tool to help them do it. I have seen bench mounted things that work, but not on anything as small as the twisted pair in a cat5 cable. Even if that is not feasible, it would be nice to have something that could strip the coax with minimum frustration.
Search for wire strip.
Lots of ideas there.
