@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?

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.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
