Wire Stripper Notch
« on: December 07, 2017, 05:02:33 PM »
Just wondering if anyone has found any interesting uses for this notch other than a wire stripper, I have used it as a wire bender for paper clips, and repaired a bent up pair of sunglasses with it.

Generally I forgot that there is that notch, so I think I have never used it 😫.

Lately, I've been having to fabricate hooks and small pins from paper clips, and all I bought last time was the colorful rubber coated ones. So, it had to come off. I used an older Ranger's cap lifter, which has the ground edge. I did use the notch yesterday to remove a staple, by straightening one of the bent over legs so it could be pulled out.

I'd say it could remove very small nails (i.e. model railroad track nails, cigar boxes) without issue.

I used mine while the opener was on it's half stop to hang them on a nail to store the SAK.
Works only with <2 layers though...
Or you need longer nails.

Buy now or regret later
