Thingiverse user Brian Beebe has contributed this great design for an electrified wire-stripper that uses an LED to tell you the instant the razor-blades have penetrated the insulation, completing the circuit that lights it up.

* Sight down the blades.
* Align the blades with where the wire should be stripped.
* Move the wire into the blades having the blades cut into the insulation.
* When the blades cut through the insulation and contact the wire the LED will light.
* Spin the wire or the tool to cut the insulation completely around the wire.
* Remove the wire from the tool and pull off the insulation.
