just wondering how one would go about doing this
I either use my teeth or a splicing tool of cutting tool
Im a teeth man myself
plenty of pepper and a little salt to taste.
to splice wire: I use a soldering iron and a bit of tape, or a crimp or screw terminal. Depends how much room I have and how tidy it needs to be.
Wire strippers most of the time, then I'll twist the ends together so the wires form a straigth line (not that nasty T-shaped twist), then salder them together and heat shrink it up..... it's the only real way to do it clean and properly.
solid core wirse i use my teeth, but multi-core i use pliers.
but remember to turn off/ dissconect the wires BEFORE you start to strip the wires with your teeth
How do you use your teeth to join 2 wires?
I thought he meant striping them
I would really hope so. That or you're a dentist.
Splicing wires? Solder them together or strip them and get some sort of joiney thing (one of the screw-on deals or some crimping type thing)
Hi, long time lurker, first time poster..
I tend to use "chocolate block"* connectors if I'm lazy or I'll do it properly and twist together, solder and heatshrink if it's on show.
* My dad's an electrician, and he's always called them that, though I very much doubt that that is their proper name!
I've heard them called that before too
hi, by the way
i think the correct name is terminal strip or strip terminal but thats quite an ambiguous description if you ask me.
Everyone should have these in a drawer at home
In the drawer? I raid father's van; also useful for blagging zipties, electrical tape, multimeters, cable, random switches......
Terminal strip eh? I'll remember that.
Well most people don't have a van full of electrical parts. Electricians being the exception... so a drawer or bin or something to that extent would be safe for most people.
We've started using this technique at work.
I guess if they can send it to Mars it is good enough to use in my computer.
Nice... i'm going to try this one out...
