Re: Finally got to use the wire stripper!

So what is the best way to use the notch to strip wire? I dimly recall using it a long time ago, but do not recall how I used it. Fading memory.
I do know it can also be useful for bending wire. Trying to bend a large paperclip to make a right angle bend in it just now though has not proven initially successful. It bent but the end is too long for some improvised tool uses including picking a simple lock, such as on a briefcase I had to open for somebody once or a box I have with a lock for which I can never seem to locate the key. I always keep trying a few small keys and end up using a paperclip.
