Abstract

In stripping insulation from wire for wire wrap and solder connections any nicking of the metal may cause a weakness which may result in breakage due to vibration or excessive handling. It has been found that a wire will be nicked if presented to the stripper blades at any angle other than approximately 90 degrees. To insure that the wire is presented correctly, a tubular guide 10 has been welded to one blade 11 of manual stripper 12. The guide is such that it will take only the wire and its insulation for which the stripper is set. To prevent nicking, a permanent stop 14 limits the closure of the stripping blades to an aperture slightly more than the wire size.
