I am embarking on building an LED Matrix that is going to require a few hundred strands of 4" jump wire, and I really didn't want to measure and cut all of those wires. I decided to make this jig that would give a roughly accurate wire length, and allow me to cut down the time I spent measuring and snipping wires.
Stay tuned for a wire stripping jig....
Step 1: Cut Down Stock
I grabbed some 1" mild steel square channel stock from the scrap bin, and cut a 6" piece with the cold saw.
When using a cold saw it is important to properly vice your work. Steel requires a lower cutting speed than aluminum would require, so be sure to check the cut settings on the saw before you begin your cut. Once there was coolant running through the blade, I slowly pulled the saw through the square stock.
