Intro: Clothespin Wire Stripper - DIY Tool
Today I show you how to make a clothespin wire stripper using a pencil sharpener and a clothespin.
This is a simple manual wire stripper with only one blade.
Here is my Youtube Tutorial Video : Clothespin Wire Stripper
The center hole of the clothespin makes it easier to cut the insulation without cutting the wire. This type of wire stripper is used by rotating it around the insulation while applying pressure in order to make a cut around the insulation. Since the insulation is not bonded to the wire, it then pulls easily off the end. This is the most versatile type of wire stripper and easy to make.
BUT BE CAREFUL !!! The blade of the pencil sharpener is very sharp. DO NOT HURT YOURSELF !!!
