Wrapping Wire Stripper

This is a Wire Wrapping Wire stripper that can result very useful for building prototypes. It uses cutter blades and the scales have been manufactured with affordable prototype PCBs.

Ordering PCBs for projects at home is a very affordable and an easier-than-ever option, but sometimes building a quick prototype without expending time designing the PCB and waiting for the delivery is a better option. Solderless breadboards are good for testing while developing but, for something definitive, using a vero board or perfboard and soldering the parts is a very good option.

A prototype made soldering wrapping wire:

Wire Wrapping Wiring as a technique for prototyping is a good option although it has some problems: only works with long leaded parts, the wire does not wrap that good in parts with cylindrical leads and the wrapping tools are generally expensive.

A very good option is using just the Wrapping Cable, that can be cut and stripped very easily, soldering it to the parts directly. This enables more options, like SMT parts. Also, the current supported by these wires is acceptable for a lot of applications ~1A and eventually they could be paralleled.

The project is described in an instructable.
