I recently moved and was not able to bring all of my tools with me.
So i discovered that nail clippers work beautifully for clipping wires, and stripping them.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: Use Them the Intended Way, Just for a Different Purpose
They are especially good for clipping off the excess wire after soldering.
Nail clippers are so lightweight, i find them easier to hold and handle than a pair of wire clippers.
I don't know how long the nail clippers will last for this (ab)use and am not sure if they will maintain their nail clipping efficiency. But for now I'm happy.
