@antedeluvian: How about snapping insulation tape with your fingers? Cloth insulation tape was easier than PVC.

Terminating and dressing multicore mineral insulated copper clad cable is a strangly satisfying past time.

@Zeeglen: REAL engineers use their TEETH!

So do kids with lousy wire cutters, I think thats where I got a taste for chewing sleeving, That was until I got hooked on tabacco.

It w,ould have been better hooked on sleeving as it took 20 years to kick tobacco.

Why stop at just 2 teeth?  Go for AWG 18 through 30!

I guess Terry Thomas had a 10AWG gap!

Now that's something I should've thought of 3 weeks ago. I am having a denture made- If I had allowed for a gap between two of the teeth and had the edges sharpened I could probably claim the denture as a work expense!

How about adding another test? Being able to strip a wire with only a pair of cutters?

@dgreigml1

CO2 fire extinguisher and a jar of acetone

Do you just take the cylinder off the wall and shpritz it into a container? LOL

CO2 fire extinguisher and a jar of acetone. Enamel off the end in one go. Solder dip or crimp with haste and no flux (the acids erode over time, that's the advantage of a crimp air tight contact).

Cooner Braided Wire, stretch between the tow bars of 2 cars, one anchor and other the pull so as to braid it tight. At least as good as Litz once stretched.
