Re: Removing insulation from fine wires

Way back---I used my teeth...   
The insulation types available today preclude the use of a single hobby price tool. You need to develop your own method for striping the insulation for each insulation type.  My "go to" tools include butane lighters, very very very sharp pen knife used in the fashion described by Mr Davis, x-acto style hobby knife with #11 blade and a home made hot wire stripper...  For coaxial cable I find the "spin around tool" almost essential. They do need maintenance and periodic "calibration".
I still have not developed a technique for removing "enamel" insulation.  Trying strong UV @ 365nM currently...
