Romex Wire Specifications and Romex Wire Stripping Tools
If you are an electrician, it is not uncommon to build up a substantial stock of old romex wiring from completed jobs in a short period of time. Old and left over copper wiring is actually a great source of extra income when you are able to strip the insulation in a quick efficient manner. Even romex wire, which is mostly used in the North America housing market, can be of value! Its weight can add up quickly with 10/2 romex weighing in at an impressive 124 lbs per 1000 ft!
