Home wiring
So you want to rewire you house. This involves buying and laying lots of coiled wire. What’s the problem? Well… it’s coiled for a start and there isn’t much you can do until you’ve straighten the stuff out. You try and pull 10 meters work of coil through a dry wall… you’ll soon see that its a pain in the butt! To combat this… what you need to do is get your pack of coiled wire. Remove the plastic sheath and pull the wire out from the center. Lay it all out in one line — do this outside if you need to. Next, work your way along the wire, straightening it along the way.

Oh — while we touch on the subject. How about removing sheaths. This can be a pain also, due to their thickness and durability. For this little trick, you’re  gonna needs to sets of pliers and a Stanley knife. With your fresh roll of wire, take one end and make a 1cm cut in the middle, along its length… you don’t have to go far. Then, grip one side of the wire with one set of pliers and the other side with the other set of pliers. Pull! The sheath will come away from the copper wire with little argument. Now you’re free to wire plugs, lights, appliances… in fact… anything that needs a wire really. Great stuff.
