"Protecting wires from sharp edges in panels:"

From: Bill Bamford  bbamford@albanytech.org

Whenever I strip larger wires prior placing them in lugs or kerneys, I score a circle around the wire insulation, then slice parallel to the wire.  Unless the insulation is very tough, the insulation can be pryed from the wire in one piece.  This piece of insulation is then snapped back onto the insulated wire anywhere the wire is placed near panel mounting screw holes or against shape edges,such as neutral lugs.
