STEP # 2
2. Strip 3mm off each end of the 18ga wire peice using the 1/8" alum sheet and razor blade to mark it first than strip the wire at the marking)
Place the 1/8" thick alumnum sheet so that it sits flat on the table. The entire peice may not sit flat, but use the area at which it does sit flat, this is important.
Place the wire pointing down on the desk and having it up against the 1/8" sheet.
Place the razor on the on the aluminum sheet and make a slit, turn the wire 180° and made a slit on the other side of the wire.
After you do this, line up the wire stripper at the marking and strip 3mm off.
IMPORTANT - make sure the slit is facing you, and the stripper blades are cutting the part where there is no slit. This will make for a clean strip and cut.
If it does not turn out clean, just use the razor blade to clean it up and make it flat.
Notice the slit made by the razor
Notice how i am slitting one side with the razor
Notice how i am slitting the other side of the wire with the razor
Make sure the slit is facing you, if you have the wire in there and you dont see a slit, turn the wire 90° until you see the slit. this is important and saves you a lot of work of cleaning up unever cuts.
Exactly 3mm cut off
