Automatic Wire Stripper (ver. 2)
by oomlout, published
When you're building circuits on a breadboard there is nothing more annoying than having to measure, snip, and then strip both ends of each and every piece of wire.
Well perhaps there are greater annoyances but that does not mean that this problem should go un-addressed. Addressed it has become, and if you too have a few stepper motors, a hand-held wire stripper and a bunch of nuts and bolts your life, too, can become easier.
For all of you crying overkill, we do have a small ulterior motive, at oomlout.com we manufacture a number of kits that come with pre-stripped wires hence the need for semi automation. This version is the much improved brethren of version one.
Let's get to stripping. (that doesn't sound quite right)
A video of it in action;
A second video (a little shaky but better at showing the different components)
All the Pieces are cut out of 6mm Acrylic.
There are still a few clearance issues in this version and a degree of tuning will be required.
To better analyze how it all goes together you can download a partial 3d Model from the google 3d Warehouse.
