If you're getting started in electronics, you'll have to do a bunch of wire stripping to hook various components together on your solderless breadboard. To remove the plastic insulation from the copper wire, you'll use a tool called a wire stripper. Here, we show you how to adjust the wire stripper for the correct gauge of your wire. This will make your job much easier so you can get back to the learning and experimentation as quick as possible!
